Fiction Writing is a course in two parts. Each class will begin with a craft discussion, along with group exercises and some lecture. We'll go over reading assignments and short homework assignments designed to stimulate classroom discussion. The second half of each class is devoted to the workshop process, where we examine the writing of you and your classmates. The craft portion will be concerned with the mechanics of writing fiction as well as analyzing the content of short stories; in other words, not only how to improve your fiction sentence-by-sentence, but also how to include the right details to do the job. Workshops involve very close reading and supportive discussion, and every member of the class is required to participate in that process as both an author and a reader.
