Advanced Fiction Writing Workshop

ENGL 115.601
instructor(s):
M 6-8:40

This workshop is especially designed for CGS, post-baccalaureate and selected undergraduate students who continue beyond English 112 or its equivalent, for writing concentration majors, and for those who are working on longer works of fiction, collections of stories, and other special projects. Discussion and critique of works by class members is the focus of the course; consequently, regular attendance is important. Problems of craft and specific problems of structure and technique will be addressed through the critiques and supplemented by examples in works of classical and contemporary fiction. Private conferences are part of the course and will be arranged by appointment on Mondays and Tuesdays. A Writing Sample is Required. Students interested in the course should submit examples of their work to Diana Cavallo, English Department, Bennett Hall 119. Non-CGS pre-registration should submit samples by November 12 and will be informed by December 11. Please include SS#, class status, and telephone number. Class is limited to 12 to 15 people.
