Outline (in English)

<Course Outline> Through the exploration of discovering what they want to write and writing it as they like, students experience the freedom of starting a new text and come to understand the difficulties involved in it. With an understanding of both its freedom and difficulties, they will search for phrases in Japanese to express what they want to say effectively, and acquire skill in the use of literary expression within poetry, stories and criticism.
<Learning Objectives> Students learn the basic stance necessary in writing, and learn how to write what they want to write as clearly as possible. This gives them an understanding of the nearly inexpressible freedom and difficulty that literary creation involves.
<Learning Activities Outside of the Classroom> Guidance will be given as necessary, but as a general rule students prepare and give a presentation on the topic of their writing before moving on to its actual creation. Standard preparation and review for this class will take two hours each.
<Grading Criteria/Policy> During the semester students submit four examples of creative writing more than 800 Japanese characters in length. They are then given opportunities to critically review each other’s creations. Grading takes into account the creative works themselves (50%) and a comprehensive appraisal of individual students’ stance toward literary creation (50%).
