Creative Writing Discussion Paper
xcLength: 1000-1250 words (not including the Works Cited/References page OR Templates)
Directions: You will familiarize yourself with the essays in chapter 19 of TSIS for this paper. Please note, there are eight essays from this chapter. You don’t necessarily have to read all eight of them (though you will need to closely read two of them). Your job is to find a connection and an area of disagreement between two of these essays. Once you explain what this area of disagreement is, you will then develop your own opinion on the topic. You have tremendous freedom in what you want to write about, so please embrace this. It’s also important to use the templates found throughout the book. These templates will improve your stylistic competency.
