Content: This unit provides students with an understanding of creative writing concepts and techniques which seem especially pertinent to the present. This understanding is developed through an examination of the ideas of contemporary writers and through workshop discussion of students' own writing. Students may choose to write fiction or poetry or scripts or a mixture. The unit is open to all students, whether experienced creative writers or not.
