Techniques of Fiction
Summer 2022
Section: 01  

ONLINE COURSE: Synchronous class meetings via Zoom 1:00pm-4:30pm, Classes held on Jan 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 13, 14, 16, 17. Please note: Students should expect some readings and assignments to be due during winter break, prior to the beginning of Winter Session class meetings. ENGL 296 is an introduction to fiction course that emphasizes reading, writing, and critical thinking about story. This workshop operates on the philosophy that you must become a skilled critical reader of fiction to become a better writer and to articulate your impressions and criticisms when we workshop the stories of your peers. We will read selected stories to facilitate our craft discussion, supplemented by the textbook readings. You will write a story of approximately 4000 words, and we'll use the techniques of fiction and feedback from workshop to take it from rough first draft to a polished story. Syllabi for Winter Session courses will be posted to https://www.wesleyan.edu/wintersession/courses.html as soon as they are available.
