Fiction Writing
Spring 2023
Taught By: Sharon M Mesmer
Section: A

CRN: 10812

Credits: 3

This course acquaints students with aspects of fiction-writing technique. It is designed for students trying to develop a project or find the approach with which they can best express themselves. The instructor discusses viewpoint, mood, characterization, dialogue, plot, and story. During the early weeks, the instructor may give assignments to help students explore their own experiences for realization in a short story or novel. Students may be asked to write a scene depicting a child-parent relationship or to create a dialogue between characters one of whom wants something from the other. Experiments in various styles are encouraged. Work is read aloud and examined. Promising projects are developed under the instructor's supervision, and consideration is given to publication possibilities. An editor or writer may occasionally visit the class to share his or her experiences with students.
