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.
