ENGL 4579 Writing Workshop: Fiction (Fall/Spring: 3 )


Course Description

Students in this course will study and practice elements of fiction writing: character development, point of view, voice, setting, imagery, sentence design, plot, pacing, and the use of time in a narrative. Enrollment in the course commits students to intensive writing, both in class and out, and full participation in the workshop editing process. Class time will be used for discussion of models from our anthology, in-class writing exercises, and group workshop focused on student writing. In addition to the feedback writers receive in workshop, they will meet with the instructor for editing conferences throughout the semester. Students will submit a final portfolio of polished, revised fiction.
