ENG1141 Creative Writing, FA2021 OL20

ENG1141 Creative Writing, FA2021 OL20

All writing is creative, including the writing you do for school, internet posts to social media, and text/email messages. Where there was a blank page–virtual or otherwise–and you fill it with your words, you have, in fact, drawn on your intellectual resources to create patterns of meaning with those words. “Creative writing,” however, generally refers to poetry, fiction, drama, and some forms of non-fiction–memoirs and narratives that use the techniques of story-telling. We will focus on understanding how form and meaning work together and on understanding the types and complexities of each genre–notably, fiction, non-fiction, poetry, drama, and cross-genres–so each student can begin to develop their unique, individual voice.

ENG 1101 D408 Fall 2017

Reading and Writing About New York City This is a writing intensive course designed to strengthen your ability to read critically, and to be effective in written communication. Over the course of this term we will study numerous essays, stories and films related to the history of New York City. Studying these works will help you to develop your own ideas and improve your writing skills. You will write several short essays, and one longer research essay. These projects will help you to develop research writing skills such as building an argument, referring to other texts, using secondary material effectively, and mastering the mechanics of quoting, citing, and documenting sources. The main readings from the course will come from The Place Where We Dwell, an excellent anthology with writings about the city of New York from a diverse range of writers in many different genres and disciplines. These readings will be supplemented with film clips, websites and handouts. It is my hope that this class will help you to develop valuable skills in written communication and research methodology, while also giving you a greater appreciation for the rich history and culture of the city around you.

My Projects

Universe of our Superheroes

Universe of our Superheroes

The goal is not to compare the two universes of Marvel and DC, but to inform what each of them are and what a consumer enjoys about each of them. The purpose of this project is also to inform those who are unaware of the idea of superheroes and the two universes of the interest society has taken into them and why there is an interest in them. In another way, we are also informing those who don’t know about the topic and would like to know, how to choose which universe they prefer, informing them of aspects in each.
