Title:   Creative Writing: Fiction      

Course Number:      ENG 0005A
Campus: Medford/Somer.   
Room: Eaton Hall 124

Course Description:

This course is an introduction to fiction writing. Our mission through the semester will be to examine and practice the craft that underpins a well-made short story. Often we will come together as a workshop, where we will help a writer to see the range of possibility in his or her work. Other activities will include weekly readings from an anthology of contemporary fiction - to take apart, to study as potential models - and exercises that will allow for further practice of various fictional techniques. Of the two longer stories you write, one will be substantively revised. In a larger sense you will have the opportunity to find both your creative voice and the stories you need to tell. By delving into the craft of fiction writing, we will look to uncover a measure of its mystery and art.
Course open to all interested students who want practice and instruction in a workshop situation. Open to all who have satisfied the College Writing Requirement.  Each section is limited to twelve students. Pre-requisites: Completion of the College Writing Requirement
