Reading for Writers classes focus on a given literary style, genre, or aspect of craft through the consideration a representative selection of readings. Writing and discussion in these classes discovers the subtle techniques used by authors to achieve aesthetic and expressive goals. Rather than engaging primarily in interpretation, these courses illuminate the formal properties of a genre as defined by its practitioners: the bricks, mortar, and architecture of writing. The goal of this inquiry is to enrich our writing, therefore these insights are put into practice through short creative assignments. Since aesthetic and social philosophies often play a role in the development of literary styles, students will master the ideas that informed the works under consideration. The goal, as the name suggests, is for writers to obtain usable knowledge through careful reading and bring this knowledge to their own work.
