Fiction Writing Workshop

ENGL 412.640
instructor(s):
R 6-8:40

This is a fiction writing course, meaning you will mainly write and talk about writing -- your own and that of your peers. It is also likely that we will read a bit of short fiction and discuss it. Course requirements include 25 pages of double-spaced prose, as polished as it can be given your talents and the time constraints of the semester; two workshop submissions, the second to be a revised version of the first, unless otherwise stipulated. You will also be asked to serve as editor for two workshop pieces, initiating class discussion and furnishing a written response to each piece.
