Writing Workshop: Innovative Fiction

Through writing exercises, reading assignments, discussion, and workshop, this writing course focuses on the creation of innovative prose fiction, with attention to contemporary literary works that self-consciously push the boundaries of traditional narrative and form. Experiments with constraint, metafiction, intertextuality, collage, and other postmodern methods of producing fiction challenge students to innovate their previous habits and writing practices.
