Intro Fiction

Spring 2019

Taught By: Faculty TBA

Section: A

CRN: 1668

In this workshop students study and practice the art of storytelling—with a focus on the roles of narrative voice, structure, and characterization in identifying genre. We will read across various genres, sub-genres, and styles—crime and detective fiction, science fiction, realism, psychological realism, fabulism, metafiction, and Gothic fiction for example—with an eye to exploring the relationship between authorial intention and reader expectations, and how both are predicated on generic conventions.
