Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Defensive: A Look Inside the Creative Writing Workshop
by Anderson , Eddie James, III, M.A., University of Louisiana at Monroe, 2020, 75; 28152934
Abstract (Summary)

When I think about my time in college, I often remember the interactions between people. It is interesting to see how one thing can offend someone and how it has no effect on another. Most of this occurred in classes where people were allowed to express their opinions. Of course, those emotions were never shown in class, but the venting of my peers inspired this small collection of stories. I wanted to explore the ego of amateur writers and have some fun with the concept of classroom critiques.
