In this course, we will aim to improve our skills as readers and writers of fiction. Through close readings of published fiction, we will examine the choices made by the authors and apply that same decision-making to our own work. This class is first and foremost a workshop, meaning you will be reading the work of your fellow students and then thoughtfully and constructively critiquing their pieces via written comments and—most importantly—class discussion.

This course serves as an introduction to the three primary genres that define creative writing: fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry. The focus of the course will be learning to read as writers—focusing on craft rather than theme, on structure rather than meaning. Assignments will take the form of online discussions and short craft essays along with the production of original stories, essays, and poems. The course will prepare you for upper-level creative writing courses and workshops. Above all, this course offers a tough but nurturing environment in which the primary goal is to make our writing better.

19264 CRW4122 Adv Fiction Writing Workshop Face to Face Instruction (P) Tu 06:00 PM - 08:50 PM Not Online

This advanced fiction workshop is designed to help writers create stories suitable for admission to graduate writing programs. It includes intensive writing practice in fiction, peer critique, and group discussion of original manuscripts and includes intensive reading of published work. In this course, we will discuss how to write fiction well and examine what techniques we can learn from published short stories. We will also learn to read, analyze, and critique our own work and the work of our peers. Finally, taking into consideration writing as a craft, we will study the art of revision.

As this is an advanced class, we will also be dealing with the thornier questions writers grapple with, like writing outside of one’s own experience, style, and juxtaposition and surprise in language.
