ENGL 453 - Adv. Fiction Writing
This new workshop welcomes experienced creative writers wanting to complete a longer manuscript: short stories; a novella; graphic novel; or a hybrid of forms including some personal prose. The course is intended for students who have written short creative texts in previous college workshops, and who now seek to build a sequence of stories, chapters, plots and subplots. In this course you may radically revise some of your prior writing as the basis of a new, more extended and synthetic manuscript; or you may have an entirely new project in mind. We will read, critique, and steal from model stories in Ann Charters's The Story and Its Writer; the Caine Prize story (and its writer); Aminatta Forna's novel, Happiness--originally written as a short story; craft essays by writers; and other texts. We'll engage extensively with these works, and with each other's emergent writing.
