  • Fiction
  • Creative Writing
This course will build on skills acquired at the introductory level by asking students to experiment with a range of genres and styles, including the gothic, hard-boiled, fantasy, and dystopic fiction. Focusing on stories by Edgar Allan Poe, Joyce Carol Oates, Jorge Luis Borges, and Edward P. Jones, among others, the course will require students to read with close attention, analyze the characteristics of a genre, and participate in a wide range of writing exercises. The written component will consist of one full-length story (between 10 and 15 pages) in one of the genres/styles discussed in class. This full-length story will be workshopped twice in class and will involve substantial revising.
