About ENGS 118 Z1

English 118 is a course that centers almost exclusively around student manuscripts. For that reason, it is designed for students serious about their writing, regardless of their level of experience. The workshop will be varied in composition, with some students working at a more intermediate level and others beginning the process of seeking publication. But again, seriousness of purpose and willingness to revise are the keys -- no prerequisites or permissions are required."

More Information

Section Description

ENGS 118, Advanced Fiction Workshop, will be a writing workshop in the most active sense. In addition to meeting with classmates to workshop and get feedback on fiction-in-progress, for each class you will draw on one or more exercises from Bret Anthony Johnston?s Naming the World and Other Exercises for the Creative Writer to help you discover, develop, experiment with, and re-envision your fiction. By the end of this course you will have two short stories (or equivalent) that are fully developed, revised, and reader-ready. Required texts will be Naming the World and Other Exercises for the Creative Writer plus The Best American Short Stories 2013.

Section Expectation

Although it is preferred that students take ENGS 53 before taking ENGS 118, contact me to discuss permission to enroll if you haven't taken the prerequisite but believe you are prepared for an advanced fiction-writing course.
