CRW 206-In this introductory course, we’ll be reading a range of contemporary short stories as a way of learning about the elements of fiction and how they can be manipulated. Then, drawing from what you’ve learned about fiction from our reading and class discussion, you’ll write two short stories that you’ll distribute to your classmates for workshopping. We’ll spend most of our time in class discussing the readings and workshopping your stories. Your work outside of class will consist of keeping up with the reading schedule, writing two fully-developed stories, and completing written critiques of your classmates’ stories. This is a discussion-based course, so your consistent attendance and active class participation will be crucial to making it a success.
