EN 301 - Advanced Fiction-Writing Workshop
 
(3 cr.) This advanced fiction-writing course uses a workshop approach to help students understand and experience the process of drafting, revising and editing short stories, as well as the importance of reading and critiquing the work of their peers. Students gain a sense of the landscape of contemporary short fiction by reading from the Best American Short Stories anthology and by giving formal presentations on print and web-based literary journals and magazines. Each student prepares at least one packet for submission to an appropriate journal or magazine, and at the semester's end, the students present selections from their work in a public venue of their own choosing (e.g., public reading, website, blog, etc.). The final portfolio represents the breadth of the students' work, including multiple drafts of stories, workshop comments, reading responses and a writer's journal.
