Writing Workshop: Fiction

This introductory fiction workshop explores techniques and aspects of craft such as structure, story and plot, character, voice, point of view, setting, description, and the possibilities offered by different narrative forms. Reading selections of classic and contemporary writing for inspiration and points of departure, we generate new writing of our own through weekly writing investigations and in-class assignments. With feedback from our colleagues, we take this work through drafts and revisions with the aim of producing a final portfolio. We also think about practical aspects of how fiction is edited, published, and read, and consider how or why we might want our own work to be published. Prerequisite: COR110 and Co-requisite: WRI210.
