EN 203 - Practicing Stylistics
(3 cr.) Students review and practice the fundamental rules governing language, focusing specifically on grammar and syntax. They analyze and practice their own emerging style through imitation and revision exercises across a variety of poetic, fictional and nonfictional models. Required reading includes The Art of Styling Sentences, Exercises in Style and Stylish Academic Writing. The class culminates with a deeply revised portfolio of original efforts and a final referenced essay on what style means--and how to achieve it.
