Let's jump to the pleasant period when the text has been worked on until it's well-organised. It flows with natural and compelling force. But say the writing is still rough. It doesn't "read well." Someone can fix that too! It may need sentence-by-sentence revision, to lift it to publishable quality. Or your text may only need light editing -- a dab here, a dab there. Either way, you're almost there. Keep going!
Every writer needs to develop a critical sense to augment creative ability. For this reason, the Creative Writing Department offers two types of courses. Workshop courses are seminars that focus on writing and on the discussion of student work. Reading courses for writers focus on aspects of literature presented from a writer's point of view. Frequently they employ writing in imitation as one of several approaches to understanding the craft of writing. Upper division workshop courses are offered at the beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels in poetry, nonfiction, and fiction. Several reading courses link two genres such as fiction and poetry, and poetry and drama.
