TTh 2-5 C


This course is a laboratory for student writers to work on short stories or, if appropriate, chapters from longer fictional projects. Over the eight weeks, we will help you discover your own methods for building worlds, developing characters, structuring plots, and crafting scenes. In the process, we will probe the divisions between genres, discuss strategies for publishing or selling your work, and invite guest authors to share their insights on craft.

Note that while for the fall and spring semesters admission to 143A requires an application process, no application is needed to register for the summer version of the course.
