Students may take "Fiction Writing" two times.
This course provides students interested in writing fiction an opportunity to explore and discuss various forms of fiction writing in a workshop environment. The main objective of the course is to help students develop and revise at least one complete work of fiction, and in the process hone individual styles and voices. One route to this goal is an inquiry into a range of techniques available to contemporary fiction writers. Emphasis is on characterization, structure, and narrative cohesion, and a variety of the craft aspects of fiction writing will be explored through exercises. These include point of view, narrative voice, plot, tension, time, sequence, dialogue, symbolism, and so on. Students will present their own fiction, respond to the writings of others, and pose questions about literature, editing, and publishing, all within the supportive and responsive environment of the workshop group.
