ENGL8800: Sem Creat Writing (51189)

Howe, LeAnne

R 3 :55 PM

Park Hall 144

Course title: Picnic

Why Is This Course Like A Picnic? Because everyone brings their own goodies to share. 

During the semester we will read and workshop the participants' plays, novels, poems, and/or screenplays.  The course is meant to be multi-genre. We will read Native and non-native plays, novels, and poetry that include 1) Noopiming: The Cure for White Ladies, University of Minnesota Press, 2020, Leanne Betasamosake Simpson; 2) Little Big Bully, 2020, Heid E. Erdrich. A Penguin Book; 3) From Turtle Island to Island Gaza, David Groulx (Poems) AU Press, 2019; 4) The Delicacy and Strength of Lace, Leslie Marmon Silko and James Wright,  1986, Graywolf; 5) The Truth About Stories, A Native Narrative, University of Minnesota Press, Thomas King, 2005, and, 6) The Conversations, Walter Murch and the Art of Editing Film, Michael Ondaatje, 2002, Knopf. The goal is to consider the new work of each participant in the seminar, all the while reading the works of contemporary Natives.  

And we may even go on a picnic, or two, as we read and share our work.
