Advanced Fiction Workshop

This course builds on the fiction writing skills from ENG 205 Introduction to Creative Writing - Fiction. As in most graduate writing workshops, our focus will be on in-class writing and the workshopping of student texts. We will also read a variety of published stories and craft essays. Close readings and discussions of these works will deepen students’ understanding of the techniques and formal choices established authors employ and will allow students to explore various methods for writing and revision. Students will also study the current conventions of publishing, and the requirements and tools fiction writers use to submit their work for publication. The course culminates with students researching writing markets and submitting one of their own stories for publication.
