CRW 206/810-In this introductory course, we’ll be reading a range of contemporary short fiction as a way of learning about the elements of fiction and how they can be manipulated.  You’ll use what you’ve learned from our reading and discussion to write two short stories that you’ll distribute to your classmates during workshop classes.  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, completing some short writing assignments, 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.

CRW 208/820-In this introductory course, we’ll focus on two broadly-defined types of short creative nonfiction:  1) writing about the self and 2) writing about the wider world through the lens of the self. 

We’ll spend most of our time in class discussing the readings and workshopping your pieces.   Your work outside of class will consist of keeping up with the reading schedule, completing some short writing assignments, writing two fully-developed pieces, and completing written critiques of your classmates’ work.
