Descriptive Writing and Human Expression: Narratives and Poetry

Descriptive Writing and Human Expression: Narratives and Poetry


People do not read because they love the sight of black and white or the smell of ink (though some may): they read because words attempt to embody experience and emotion. We dive into a story to experience something new and exciting–something beyond the world of our current understanding. Students experience the excitement of not only diving into others’ worlds but of creating their own. Through careful observation and exploration, students discover how to relay their experiences colorfully, both in narrative and poetic forms. Students travel along the sands of time to discover how these forms have emerged and transformed through thousands of years, and choose one poem of millions to examine in detail. Through their explorations of others’ works and communicative choices, students determine how they can connect with others, and not only through the written word. 


During this eight-week excursion, students will be involved in poetry exploration and analysis, narrative writing, and reflective work. This includes a 700+ word poetry analysis essay and a 500+ word narrative piece.
