This is an advanced workshop course in writing fiction, intended for students who are already pretty experienced with the basic skills of characterization, plotting, etc. This course has no prerequisites, but a knowledge of the critical vocabulary we use in analyzing and evaluating fiction will be helpful. Since the workshop is open to students in other disciplines, we may need to spend some time at the beginning of the term getting familiar with general procedures and terms. We will spend most of our class time analyzing stories written by class members. It will be my responsibility to make sure that these discussions are thorough, critical and supportive. Each student can expect to have two of his/her stories discussed by the entire class, and a third story critiqued by the instructor.
