Introduction to Fiction

Spring 2023

Taught By: Lisa Freedman

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 selections from some of the most essential fiction writers of our moment.
