Advanced Creative Writing—The Art of Writing Fiction and Poetry
Mayfield's aspiring authors delve into fiction and poetry writing in a literary and artistic environment. Work in this conservatory emphasizes the actual experience of engaging in the craft of writing for a literary and artistic end. Students are given the opportunity to collaborate with other writers and other performing arts classes to create original works.
Students first focus on fundamentals of creative fiction and poetry. Later, they collaborate on Colophon, our annual literary magazine, and each student completes a longer, individual capstone project. The year culminates with a class reading.
Our Mayfield conservatory writers are full collaborators and participants in all-arts events throughout the year.
