Lowcountry Writing Project accepting applications for spring classes
The Lowcountry Writing Project at The Citadel is now accepting applications for two classes being offered for graduate credit in the spring semester.
Writing Children’s Books (ENGL 551) is for teachers who might like to publish their own stories for young readers. The course will feature a variety of guest authors who will share stories about the publication process, plus class time to read and discuss stories in progress. Classes meet at The Citadel on Jan .19, 23 and 26; Feb. 16, 20, and 23; and March 16, 20, and 23; Tuesday classes meet from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., and Saturday classes meet from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Young Adult Literature (ENGL 552) is for teachers who want to become more familiar with current young adult literature – the books students are reading outside of class – and with ways to use some of those books in regular classes. Participants will read a wide array of young adult books and share information about those books, as well as teaching ideas.. Classes meet at The Citadel on Tuesdays from 5 to 8 p.m., beginning Jan. 12.
The fee for each course is $300, which covers both tuition and books. Each course is worth three hours of graduate credit through The Citadel Graduate College, and is open to all public and private school teachers in the Lowcountry. Register online before Jan. 8 at www.citadel.edu/writingproject/.
