Introduction to Fiction

Spring 2020

Taught By: Robert Lopez

Section: A

CRN: 1128

Credits: 3

This course is intended to encourage and guide students who are starting to explore the many creative possibilities fiction affords. Through reading assignments, writing exercises, and discussions, we consider character development, dialogue, point of view, and significant detail. Attention is also paid to recognizing good ideas, developing stories, finding the best structure, and honing one's own unique voice. The majority of class time is spent reviewing projects by students, which are workshopped on a weekly basis. Readings include works by Rick Moody, Jhumpa Lahiri, Tim O'Brien, Lorrie Moore, and Michael Cunningham.
