CRW 206-In this introductory course we’ll be reading a wide range of contemporary short stories as a way of learning about the elements of fiction and how they can be manipulated.  Then, drawing on what you’ve learned about fiction from our reading and class discussion, you’ll write a story and distribute it to your classmates for workshopping.  Assignments include a test, quizzes, written peer critiques, and one fully-developed story.  This is a discussion-based course, so your consistent attendance and active class participation will be crucial to making it a success.
