ENGL 327

Advanced Fiction Writing

In this intensive fiction workshop students produce a portfolio of original fiction which undergoes many revisions, building upon techniques introduced in ENGL 227: plot and structure, point of view, character, setting, tone, voice, metaphor, motif. Students explore techniques of published short stories from the writer?s perspective as they develop their own techniques and writing. Because good writing does not happen in the absence of obsessive, persistent, close readings, this is a reading and writing intensive course.

Prerequisites: ENGL 220 and 227; registration code required from the professor.
