This is a graduate level workshop course in writing fiction, intended for students who have already achieved the basic skills of characterization, plotting, etc. Qualified undergrad-uates will be eligible. This course has no prerequisites, but I'll expect members of the class to be familiar with the tools and devices of fiction and with the critical vocabulary used in analyzing and evaluating it. Each student will have two of his/her stories discussed by the class. All students are required to attend class regularly and to participate actively in the class discussions. Each student is required to submit a one-page critique of every story discussed in class. Each student will submit a term project, due at the last class meeting. This project will consist of a new story, written since the beginning of the fall, 05 term, that illustrates what you?ve learned from the class, accompanied by an essay (6-10pp, double-spaced) in which you articulate what you've learned and how this story illustrates those gains.
