Fiction Writing

ENGL 511.301
T 12-3

This is an advanced workshop in the writing of fiction. We shall undertake a number of set exercises of various kinds, depending upon the interests, capabilities, and deficiencies of the class. We shall engage in mutual criticism as a way of getting each student to the point where he or she can evaluate his or her own work, knowing when to fiddle with it and when to leave it alone. There will be some reading assignments, but no final exam.
