Special Topics: Generative Novel Workshop
ENGL 390
Spring 2024
Section: 01  

In this course, students will study contemporary novels, including the work of Jacqueline Woodson, Julie Otsuka, and Elizabeth McCracken, with an eye for what differentiates the craft of writing a novel from that of writing a short story. Students then will conceptualize, explore, and write a substantial portion of a new novel project in class. They will submit outlines and excerpts for peer critique and participate in workshopping their peers' writing. The focus of this course will be generative rather than critical; that is, we aim to formulate questions, spark inspiration, and create momentum for a new novel project, rather than seek answers or completeness.
