Welcome to Introduction to Creative Writing with Sandra Lim

This course offers aspiring creative writers an introduction to reading and writing poetry and fiction. The course will emphasize method and writing, though we will study important fundamentals of craft in each genre. To become better writers, we need to become better readers, so the course’s intended learning outcomes include providing you with an improved vocabulary regarding reading; a set of concrete writing practices; and models for beginning and revising your own creative work.
