CRWT 225 Travel Writing

3 credits 45.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

Regardless of genre, creative writing must evoke a sense of place. In some instances, writers use a familiar setting as a starting point. In others, they rely on creating complete fictional environments-cities, counties, towns-or use place as a platform for exploring political, historical, or personal concerns. This craft seminar will expand the notion of travel writing to include reading and writing creative nonfiction, poetry, and fiction that are distinctly grounded in place. Topics covered may include the intricacies of description, documentary techniques, and the study of neighborhoods as ways of reflecting history, culture, and the forces that shape people’s lives.
