This course begins with short writing exercises designed to jump-start creative thinking and to explore fiction basics: character, dialogue, plot, point of view, and imagery. Students then submit longer pieces to be discussed in a workshop setting, which are reviewed with particular attention to technique, style, and narrative structure. Readings include works by James Baldwin, Joan Didion, Mavis Gallant, Virginia Woolf, and Paul Bowles.
