Authors In Depth: Literature for Writing Majors




College of Liberal Arts and Sciences

Date Range



"Authors In Depth: Literature for Writing Majors" is a paper in the panel titled "Beyond Rhetoric and Composition: The Liberal Arts Writing Major." Responding to the recent scholarship about the development of writing majors across the United States, this panel argues that the most appropriate curriculum for undergraduates embraces multiple writing-related fields. This paper in particular examines the type of approach that is most beneficial in helping creative writing students understand how writing works in ways that they can import to their own projects. Reports will be given on the types of assignments given in a pilot section of the course taught in Fall 2010, with a discussion of outcomes and ways these outcomes can bridge gaps between other types of courses in the undergraduate Writing major.
