In this workshop students study and practice the art of storytelling—with a focus on the roles of narrative voice, structure, and characterization in identifying genre. We will read across various genres, sub-genres, and styles—crime and detective fiction, science fiction, realism, psychological realism, fabulism, black humor, self-reflexive storytelling, and Gothic fiction for example—with an eye to exploring the relationship between authorial intention and reader expectations, and how both are predicated on generic conventions.
