Section 2: Tuesday and Thursday 11:00-12:15 PM
Professor: Angela Jackson Brown
The course is designed to take students (and the professor) further into the art and craft of fiction than can be covered in a creative writing overview course. It raises questions about the value of fiction, what makes fiction good, successful, outstanding and beautiful, and how to workshop and Re-Vision your fiction. The student will also submit critical essays in response to the readings of writers whose work they are to emulate and celebrate. We will examine the writing of the masters as well as some up-and-coming contemporary writers.. The course is specifically designed for those who wish to develop a writing routine on their own, as well as those who plan to continue the study of fiction in ENG 407 or some other upper level fiction writing class or workshop.
Possible Texts: Writing Fiction; supplemental reading
