This course satisfies the final requirement for Certificate in Creative Writing candidates by providing a structured environment in which to engage in activities that help writers move from workshop feedback reliance toward self-directed writing and revision. Students articulate a personal course goal that aligns with their larger goals as a writer, then craft a plan to reach it by the end of the course. Independent work on creative projects is supported by class discussions focused on professional development and guest speakers who illuminate different aspects of a writing life. By the end of the course, students will reach their independent writing goal and complete a series of written assets that help them transition to a writer’s life.
