More Information

Section Description

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.

Section Expectation

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.

Evaluation

Grade based on participation and final portfolio of creative works.
