The senior writing seminars immerse students in the study of a genre of their choice. Writing- and workshop-intensive, these Harkness seminars combine rigorous literary analysis and regular creative practice and revision. Students read diverse texts as models for their own writing, analyzing elements of form, voice, and technique. As they deepen their understanding of how texts in the genre are crafted, they gather useful tools and terminology to create their own works. Students will leave the course with a collection of original work in and craft-oriented analyses of the genre.
