Section Description:

The course title “Challenging Writing” refers to the creativity and craft you will exercise as you work to express yourself in meaningful prose, in genres that may include the reflective essay, cultural critique or argument, and profile of a person or place. It also refers to writing you will read: works by accomplished authors from different eras, populations, and places that challenge our ways of seeing the world—writers who have, through passion, dedication, and a love for language, articulated their visions in ways that may inspire you as writers and as human beings.
