ENGL 292 Creative Writing: Children's Literature




This is an intensive workshop in writing literature for children of various ages. Students will work on such forms as text for picture books, poetry and nonsense rhymes, and chapters of young adult novels. Critically examining gendered and settler colonial biases that have historically shaped creative writing workshops and the field of children's literature, students will respond to diverse artistic voices on their own terms and manifest self-awareness about their positionality as it relates to the learning environment and the kinds of children's literature they produce.
