New Directions in Poetry and Fiction

An On-Line Class Offered by
The New School Online University
Creative Writing Department
New York, New York

Spring Term: Jan. 23 - Mar. 24 2006
Instructor: Robert Kendall

This workshop encourages students to try something new in their writing, to
push against conventional limitations. We explore unusual literary
territory, such as the borderland between poetry and fiction. We look at
hybrid forms that combine writing with visual art or performance. We turn to
new expressive possibilities opened up by the Internet. We consider how
literature can profitably take on the trappings of games, divination
systems, or other "nonliterary" activities. Whatever your interests and your
writing style, you may find that taking a few risks can breathe new life
into your work. The focus is on student writing, but we also discuss a
variety of works that can serve as models and inspiration.

This class is conducted entirely online through the New School Online
University. Students can participate from nearly anywhere in the world by
logging onto the New School's electronic campus via the World Wide Web. All
that's required is a computer and Internet access.
