English

Kents Hill’s English program provides college-bound students with regular opportunities to develop proficiency in reading, speaking and listening, and writing. Our course sequence introduces students to literature from a range of authors, time periods, and literary forms, and all courses promote skill development through discussions, presentations, creative work, and traditional essay writing. In keeping with Kents Hill School’s 4D curriculum, English classes also include extensive investigation of character-related issues and multiple opportunities for student reflection. Each student is enrolled in an English course at all times and is required to complete at least four credits of English in order to graduate. Kents Hill offers English courses at the 100-600 levels.

ENG 501: Creative Writing

This class is an introductory writing, workshop, and survey course designed for students who want to learn to write life’s true stories, explore character as a beating heart of good creative writing, and unearth an interest in the power of words and how those words create beauty, teach us about life, and connect us even closer to the world.  It offers the opportunity for you to develop and practice the writing techniques and processes of creative nonfiction, fiction writing, and poetry.
