Lifting Every Voice through Creative Writing and Publishing (3 Semester Hours)


If you want to change the world, pick up your pen and write.

– Martin Luther

Every student has a voice, and through this course, students’ voices can be better heard through their creative writing and the publishing thereof. This course supports educators to apply creative writing principles to foster student creative thinking, writing skills, and presentation tool usage across disciplines. Participants will learn pedagogical approaches for a variety of creative writing genres – including personal narrative, fiction, poetry, journals and blogging – as well as how to incorporate digital media into creative writing lesson planning and how to use online resources effectively.
