"You must go on, I can’t go on, I’ll go on.” These final words of Samuel Beckett’s The Unnamable can inspire—or challenge—any writing practice, from texting, to journaling, to crafting essays, stories, and books. How do we go on through fear, anxiety, blocks, and catastrophes? (Short answer: “Sometimes?!?”) How do we consistently discover and shape new narratives, and then do it all over again in revision? How can our writing benefit from reassessing and reaffirming our voices, languages, craft, and writing identities? This course aims to help us all think and write anew, and to welcome the enlargement, refinement, and transformation of our creative practices. Workshop requires a rigorous level of participation and accountability; it also allows us to take risks with craft, inspiration, and our limitless capacity to grow as writers.

After the first week of the semester, permission of the instructor will be required in order to register for this course.

INTERMEDIATE NON-FICTION: I'LL GO ON. This course will examine the ways in which poets engage, describe, and represent the multi-faceted self. Students will read and study both canonical and contemporary works in order to see how poetry engages the external world in order to better understand the inner one. We will study poetic techniques for allowing our written selves to be as complex, flexible, and three-dimensional as we are. Weekly poetry assignments and prompts will compliment close-reading and craft discussions, with a workshop component. May not be enrolled as the following classifications: Fifth Year or Senior. No pre-requisites.
