Explore the methods of creating fiction of every sort (and every genre) from short stories to novels. This class combines lectures, writing prompts, and discussions of assigned readings in order to unpack, understand—and most importantly apply—the elements that make great stories work. Topics include choosing the right point of view and voice for your story, shaping fully realized characters, creating compelling beginnings, and narrative strategies you want to consider while revising and editing, as well as aspects of publishing as it exists today. It’s not your parents' publishing landscape…. Come prepared to write.
