CRWR 302 - Master’s Project in English and Creative Writing


Semester Hours: 3
Fall, Spring
The Master’s Project in English and Creative Writing represents guided instruction leading to the completion of an extended creative writing project of at least 50 pages in fiction, literary non-fiction, or dramatic writing, or at least 35 pages in poetry. The master’s project is required of all candidates nearing the conclusion of their master’s program in English and creative writing. The manuscript may be defined as a complete draft of a novella, the first chapters of a novel, a series of short stories, personal essays, or literary non-fiction, a cycle or series of poems, a full length or an extended one-act play or a set of one-acts or screenplay. Along with addressing the quantifiable requirements for length, the Master’s Project should reflect the candidate’s best effort to compose a work of depth and breadth, of exploration and revision. It could consist of work generated from the beginning of the semester, or it may constitute a comprehensive development of previous material, culminating in a broader, deeper exploration of earlier work. At the conclusion of the Master’s Project, the candidate will offer a defense of his or her work before the project adviser and one to two other members of the English department faculty. The satisfactory completion of the written work, as well as the defense, will conclude the requirements for the master’s project. A copy of the project is retained in the English department files.
