"The course is designed to help students discover themselves as writers," said Dr. Donna Coffey, the associate professor of English who will be teaching the course. "While we will explore the genres of poetry, fiction, drama and creative nonfiction, students may choose to concentrate on one for their class project. The class will be small with a great deal of individual attention, and students will participate in workshops in which they share their work with other students in order to receive constructive criticism and encouragement."
