Writer's Craft
Developed by
Nancy Mitchell

In this class we look at literary texts of all genres for examples as to how specific writers have employed poetic devices and literary techniques to convey intention and tone. In weekly annotations students demonstrate their understanding of craft with quoted, textual evidence to support their comments. While they annotate, they are encouraged (exhorted) to keep an eye and ear open as to how they can use craft in their own creative writing assignments for class workshop.
