Curriculum & Daily Life

Curriculum

Our curriculum draws from our ENGL 2123 Introduction to Creative Writing course, and is taught by Professor Rob Roensch. Students will be asked to workshop their own material and learn about craft across multiple genres. Young writers also have the chance attend a reading in conjunction with the Red Earth MFA program. By the end of the weekend, students will have created broadsides of their work and prepared a short piece to read.

Daily Life
