Creative Writing

Reflections on Poetry Selection

From ENG240, Introduction to Creative Writing, written in APA format. Instructor’s feedback is written on the References page. The prompt was to write a critique of a poetry selection from our text as if it were to be published in a literary magazine.

 

Original Short Story

Another ENG240 assignment requiring a 1000 – 1150 word original short story that utilizes narrative, dialogue, setting, conflict, tension and resolution. Instructor’s feedback is written on page 7. He had many minor edits to the taglines of my dialogue. It was a positive learning experience.
