Forms of Poetry
Amy Lowell wrote, “No one expects a man to
make a chair without first learning how, but
there is a popular impression that the poet
is born, not made, and that his verses burst
from his overflowing heart of themselves.
As a matter of fact, the poet must learn his
trade in the same manner, and with the same
painstaking care, as the cabinet-maker.” Let’s
look at poetry from a designer’s perspective.
As a designer of poetry, we are charged with
creating works of beauty that sometimes fall
within certain parameters such as: What does
this “space” need? What do I want to “say”
here? What are my materials? In this course
students will address the design qualities of
a poem by experimenting with forms like
the sonnet, ballad, ode, cento, chant, elegia,
haiku, and villanelle. Note: No previous
experience necessary.

Writing Narrative Non-Fiction
Do you have a true story to tell but don’t
know where to start? By “showing” rather
than “telling” a story, your scenes will come
alive with action and emotion, but good
research is also needed to add the factual
details that make the most compelling tales.
Whether it be a biography, political expose
or memoir, writing non-fiction using fiction
techniques is harder than it looks, but this
course will help break the craft into its basic
elements. Through trigger exercises and readand-critique workshop sessions, students will
explore plot, point of view, voice, characters,
setting, description and dialogue. We will
also discuss research and interviewing techniques, and how to approach the overall
narrative structure of a short or book-length
work.
Discover how successful middle grade and
young adult books are crafted, and begin
to plot out and write a tale of your own.
In this course, we will consider how a plot
works, what makes a compelling character,
and what drives a reader forward. Students
will participate in an online critique group
and have an opportunity to get their first five
pages reviewed.

Playwriting I
From Death of a Salesman to Company to
The Color Purple, the foundation of dramatic
writing is characters in conflict. In this class
you will learn about this and other basic dramatic principles in the only way you really
can: by doing. You will write extensively,
working with such concepts as character
objectives and tactics, conflict, dramatic language and style in order to focus your dramatic vision and unlock that elusive “writer’s
voice.” You will have the opportunity to share
your work and receive extensive critique in a
safe and supportive workshop environment.
The class will culminate in readings of the
students’ original work. Note: Please bring

Novel Writing III
˜This class will prepare you for the big
Humanities & Writing
picture review of your novel. With the use of
contemporary and classic novels as examples,
you will evaluate the progress on the plot
arc and character development within your
story. Other parts of craft will be reviewed as
well, including point of view, conflict, and
subplots to determine where the story as a
whole is working or needs revision. For the
workshop portion of the course we will focus
on endings. This does not mean you have to
have completed your novel, but we will begin
the work to develop a last chapter, an essential way to determine what should really be in
the middle. Note prerequisite: Novel Writing
II (WCWP-40239) or department approval.
Screenwriting I
Get an insider’s understanding of the dynamics of screenwriting, exploring both the creative and business aspects. Learn how to write

script in any genre you choose, identify the
best market for your particular skills, and
practice the art of pitching. Other topics to
be explored include formats (for TV movies,
half-hour episodes, one-hour episodes, and
feature films), common pitfalls, and how
to avoid the producer’s trash can. Examples
from new and classic films will be used. This
course will also help writers in other media,

LITERATURE
Ernest Hemingway: Titan of
American Literature
˜Ernest Hemingway wrote “All good
books are alike in that they are truer than if
they had really happened and after you are
finished reading one you will feel that all that
happened to you and afterwards it all belongs
to you; the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the
remorse.” One of the most influential writers of the 20th century, he has given us just
that: A front-row seat at his musings on war,
love, masculinity, morality, alcoholism, the
American abroad, and the aimlessness of the
lost generation. Through round-table discussions of The Sun Also Rises, A Movable Feast,
and the short stories, we will investigate
Hemingway’s spare, elegant, and emotionally
ferocious stories. Whether you are discovering his works for the first time, or revisiting his brilliance, the works of Hemingway
are likely to make a profound and lasting
impression.

Brewing
From just eight craft breweries in the U.S. in
1980 to over 2,500 nationwide today, craft
and microbrewing has developed into a multibillion dollar industry. San Diego is contributing to the growth of the brewing trade with
more than eighty local breweries in operation
and many more in the planning stages. The key
to a career in this thriving business is to gain
the training and knowledge necessary to excel
in this specialized field.
Brewers bring expertise from a diverse array of
fields including engineering, chemistry, microbiology, physics and business, and must be able
to apply that knowledge on a daily basis. The
UC San Diego Extension Brewing certificate
curriculum provides students with the technical skill and knowledge to select raw materials,
produce wort, manage yeast and fermentation
processes, and finish and package the product, all
to the highest industry standards. The business
curriculum provides graduates with the skills and
knowledge necessary to administer all financial
and managerial operations of a brewery.
Taught by leading professional brewers and other
industry experts, the UC San Diego Extension
Brewing Certificate is a part-time, evening and
weekend program that offers academic and practical training for entry-level brewing professionals. The certificate can be completed in 18-24
months and students may take as many or as few

Humanities & Writing
Technical communication is an excellent career
for good writers who love to help others understand complex information. They draw on their
skills in writing and information design to
translate complex scientific or technical information into content that a specific audience
will easily understand. Technical communicators work in every field, from accounting to
pharmaceuticals to telecommunications and
create a wide variety of documents and scripts,
including environmental impact statements,
financial reports, training materials, user guides
and more. Demand is greatest for communicators who have degrees in science or engineering,
but there are opportunities for those with a
background in communications, journalism,
English, visual media, and other fields.
