NYU Sydney: Creative Writing

Gallatin Study Away Course
WRTNG-UG 9501, 4 credits
Typically Offered: Fall and Spring
Level: Undergraduate

In this creative writing class students will produce work informed by their experiences of exploring, learning about, and being in Sydney. Students are encouraged to contemplate how a sense of place can be conveyed through writing, and to consider the palimpsestic environments (natural, urban, cultural, historical etc.) they interact with and within. Students will engage with a diverse range of readings, identifying their technical elements and discussing their affective poetics to learn how to ‘read as a writer’. Students shall workshop their works-in-progress during the course, learning how to effectively communicate critical feedback and how to be receptive to constructive critique during the drafting process. At the end of the course students will have the opportunity to collectively self-publish their work as a physical zine and/or an online blog.
