In this online course, students gain experience in creative writing through a cyclical approach to creating and refining texts in French. In each course module, students will begin the unit by exploring a new author and genre via Canvas-based readings and webinars and by completing analyses of model texts; next, they will participate in pre-writing workshop activities before drafting a text; finally, they will receive feedback from their instructor and peers through digital writing conferences and online peer review. Genres explored include description of symbols and memories, ethnotexts based on observations of public spaces, playful poetry and prose texts that manipulate language and style, and personal podcast narratives.
This is an 8-week three credit fully online course that will run from mid June until early August 2021.
