Greg Bottoms ()
Dates: May 18 - June 12, 2015; Prereq: ENGS 053
Writer's Workshop will focus on practicing the core elements of craft and technique in prose writing across both nonfiction (memoir, sketch, travel story, case study) and short fiction (including flash fiction, prose poems, and longer stories and chapters). Daily topics and exercises might explore voice, image and metaphor, the creation of a persona in first-person narration, scenic construction versus summary, magnifying event for effect, modes of characterization, dialogue, and handling form and structure to achieve dramatic and emotional clarity.
Students will read short examples and write daily exercises. By the end of the course students will produce a series of short and longer creative pieces for a final portfolio, some of which we will share and workshop.
Grade based on participation and final portfolio of creative works.
