Section: A

CRN: 1571

Credits: 4

This course provides an introduction to the central concepts and techniques of fiction writing and creative writing workshop. Through exposure to a variety of literary texts across genres, periods, and styles, students learn to read as fiction writers—focusing as much on how stories are constructed as on what they say or mean—in order to enhance their knowledge of and facility with the basic elements of storytelling, including setting, character, plot, dialogue, tone, voice, point of view, symbolism, and so on. Students likewise develop an applied understanding of process, revision, and craft by composing their own stories and submitting them for consideration in workshop, using the constructive criticism of their peers to aid and guide the revisions and rewriting of their own creative work. May not be enrolled as the following Classifications: Fifth Year or Senior. No pre-requisites.

After the first week of the semester, permission of the instructor will be required in order to register for this course.
