BPC to offer Creative Writing class at ORCA headquarters

MOUNT VERNON –Brewton-Parker College’s Division of Arts & Letters has partnered with the Ohoopee Regional Council for the Arts (ORCA) to offer an evening Creative Writing class at the ORCA headquarters building in downtown Vidalia this fall.


The class, “Learning Form From Those Who Came Before Us”, is a special topics English and Creative Writing 300-level course that may be taken for credit or non-credit, meaning it is open to community and alumni interested in participating in continuing their education. Cost for non-credit is $150.


The 12-week class is held on most Tuesdays from 6 p.m. to 8:20 p.m. The course will not meet on the nights ORCA holds its monthly meetings, but will work outside of the classroom on writing assignments. Classes begin August 25. Call the Office of Admissions to sign up today for ENG/CRW 350 at 912-583-3265.


Dr. Thom Brucie, assistant professor of English and creative writing at BPC, will teach the course, which will focus on short story form.


“Form and function enhance each other in quality art,” explains Dr. Brucie. “Form is also a personal ‘voice’. Voice constitutes that unique attitude, music and imagination that allows any given person to write his or her individuated perceptions of reality. Seeing how others make ‘form’ helps us to understand and create our own.”


The course will explore the works of Andrea Barrett, John Barth, Charles Baxter, Raymond Carver, Ernest Hemingway and Flannery O’Conner, to name a few.
