|Intro to Fiction Writing - 36498 - ENGL 283 - 01|
What makes a short story sing? In this class, each student will develop his/her/their own short stories while examining the elements that make any story truly brilliant. Questions of character, description, plot, setting, focalization, story structure, form, genre, style, and voice will be central to our investigation as we construct our own pieces and critique our classmates’. While the emphasis will be on the act of writing, we will also read classic and contemporary Anglophone short stories drawn from a diverse, global range of sources. NOTE: This is a class for students who are serious about learning the craft of fiction in the context of contemporary literary forms and cultures. Expect rigorous, generous criticism, with an emphasis on the technical dimensions of short story writing--and an interrogation of the very notion of 'craft.' We will be writing off-site during class time, engaging other art forms, and attending readings.
