This class is an intensive seminar for first-year students to help you develop your ideas through reading and writing. Instructors choose literary topics based on their interests and expertise. The topics, which range in scope and approach, are geared toward the work of crafting and revising essays. You will experiment with a variety of expository and creative styles and proceed throughout the semester from familiar writing (the personal essay) to more analytical writing (the critical essay). You will emerge from this course with more confidence in the process of formulating, developing, and expressing your ideas with the written word.
