EN 542 Teaching the Writing of Fiction


This is an intensive introduction to the art of fiction writing, designed to address both the needs of serious writers and the pedagogical interests of high-school and college teachers who wish to introduce fiction writing into their curricula. Students do varied exercises in fiction writing, produce a final portfolio of four short stories, read and critique stories by professional writers, and submit their fiction to their peers for discussion and judgment. No prior fiction writing experience is required.
