ENGL 26107 - Advanced Writing in Fictional Forms

Course Credit: 1
Advanced Writing in Fictional Forms: Short Forms In this workshop students will do advanced work in the short story form. In addition to considering aspects of style, voice, thematic development, and craft-based elements, students will also be encouraged to experiment, and try a range of narrative strategies. Four widely recognized and influential contemporary short story collections–Jhumpa Lahiri’s Interpreter of Maladies, Junot Diaz’s Drown, Denis Johnson’s Jesus’ Son and Mary Gaitskill’s Bad Behavior–will provide reference points for discussing literary craft, as well as inspiration for writing exercises and longer story assignments. Prerequisite(s): ENGL-16100; Or permission of instructor [AH]
