The Senior Seminar is designed for students who excel in a collaborative small-group environment (6-12 seniors) where they work together with other writers in a shared genre. In the Senior Seminar, students critique, complete, shape, and revise a portfolio of work in their primary genre culled from their previous writing courses. This seminar is community-based, as the class collaboratively selects critical and creative readings that relate specifically to its members' writing projects. In engagement with these readings, as well as student writing projects, the class examines issues of craft, form, content, and process. In addition to developing a final revised portfolio (30-40 pages for fiction), each student will submit a critical essay contextualizing her/his body of work.
