Please note that EN 202 does not satisfy the College of Arts and Sciences writing requirement. EN 202 is not a prerequisite for any of the advanced writing classes, though we do recommend it to students who wish to pursue further creative work in the program.
Because admission to any of the advanced courses is not guaranteed, we recommend that you register for 202 prior to submitting a portfolio for one of the advanced writing classes. As seats in creative writing courses are limited, we recommend that students apply to the advanced courses as often as they wish. You will only increase your chances of being accepted by doing so.
Advanced Creative Writing Courses, Fall 2013
Advanced creative writing courses in either poetry (EN 304) or fiction (EN 305 in the fall, and EN 405 in the spring) are offered each semester. Seats in these courses are usually limited to ten per section, and are offered to students on a selective/competitive basis. Students must submit a sample of their creative work to the course instructor before the start of classes.
|CAS EN 304 A1||Writing of Poetry||Wed. 1-3pm||Calvin Olsen|
|CAS EN 305 A1||Writing of Fiction||Tue. noon-2pm||Anthony Wallace|
|MET EN 305 A1||Writing of Fiction||Wed. 6-9pm||Kimberly Elkins|
Please submit your sample at least ten days before the first day of classes of the semester so that the instructor will have time to read. The best way to submit your work is to send it as an MS Word attachment to the instructor (visit www.bu.edu/directory for instructor e-mail addresses) or to our program administrator. When submitting poems, please attach them as one contiguous document to facilitate printing. You may also drop them off in person, or mail them to our offices at: Coordinator, Creative Writing Program, 236 Bay State Road, Room 211, Boston, MA 02215.
For Students Pursuing Concentrations in Creative Writing
There is presently no major or minor in creative writing at the undergraduate level, however, for students majoring or minoring in English, or pursuing a creative writing concentration in COM, any advanced creative writing course (EN 304, 305, 306, or 405, including MET courses) will count for concentration credit. Within certain limitations, you may take each creative writing course up to two times; please consult your advisors.
It is not typical for undergraduates or graduate students enrolled elsewhere in the university to be accepted into one of our graduate workshops. That being said, it does happen in rare instances, provided that space is available. For students looking to be granted admission to any of the graduate workshops, the procedure is essentially the same as it is for the advanced undergraduate courses. We do ask, however, that you submit your work at least several weeks prior to the start of the semester to allow the professor extra time to consider it.
