ENG 273: Introduction to Literature: Creative Writing – Short Stories of Hawaiʻi

Summer 1 (online)

The people of Hawaiʻi are ethnically, culturally, and generationally diverse. Throughout the session, we’ll canvass various literatures reflecting such diversities. As we read, we’ll contemplate the role of literature and story, as well as compare and contrast differences in writing technique and craft.

The final project requires that students develop their own creative short story/narrative of any genre so as to demonstrate their understanding of the course content.

Fulfills the general education requirements: DL, NI, WI
