The Capstone in Writing is an opportunity for all graduating Seniors to develop an original project in a rigorous environment and hone their skills over the term in a final work. Each class will be designed as a collaborative small-group environment—capped, ideally, at twelve students. In a collective of advanced writers, students will pursue individual projects in a shared genre. Projects can be portfolio-driven (students can revise a portfolio of work in their primary genre culled from previous writing courses) or entirely new (a cycle of poems; set of short stories; part of a novel; series of nonfiction articles or book). No matter the genre, each thesis class will examine issues of craft, form, content, and process. Projects should aim to be ambitious, and final manuscripts polished work that exemplifies the skill and craft of an accomplished writer--with an (approximate) length of 30-40 pp. Must be enrolled in one of the following Classifications: Fifth Year or Senior. Must be a Literary Studies major (this is a standard restriction for all senior seminars across the college). Non-fiction - pre-req of LLSW 4010 Advanced Non-Fiction minimum grade of C.
