Advanced Fiction Workshop
This course is an intensive exploration of fiction writing. Presented as a seminar and writing workshop, the class reads and discusses short stories, novels, and essays on the art and craft of fiction writing. Writing three short stories (or the equivalent in chapters of a novel/novella) leads students to integrate theory and practice as they produce work informed by a detailed understanding of such common fictional elements as character, plot, setting, and conflict as well as more advanced concepts that foster finely wrought creative work. Students submit at least one original work for publication.
