Advanced Fiction Writing
ENGL 146
Spring 2007 not offered

We will examine stories written by a wide range of contemporary authors, paying particular attention to characterization, the relative merits of elaboration and compression, transitional elements, and the uses of memory, mystery and surprise. This seminar is designed for students with experience in writing narrative fiction who wish to further develop their skills. Students will be expected to submit short stories and revisions on a regular basis, to be discussed in a workshop format in class. Readings by classic and contemporary authors will be assigned as well.
