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


Course Description

Students 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. Since students' stories are texts for class discussion, a generous willingness to respond to others' writing and to share one's own work is an essential prerequisite. Students are expected to produce a steady stream of new and revised fiction throughout the semester. Class time will be used for discussion of models from our anthology, in-class writing exercises, and group workshops focused on student writing. Individual conferences with the instructor supplement workshop discussions. Students will submit a final portfolio of polished, revised fiction.
