Description

ENGLISH 423 is an advanced level discussion course in the writing (and reading) of short fiction, with an emphasis on revision. Typical sessions will consist of discussion of original student work and assigned readings. The primary focus of the class will be on short stories, although much of our discussion could also apply to novellas and novels. We will consider the aims of individual writers along with the effects of stories on readers and examine/practice the various mechanisms by which these are achieved (plot, character, dialogue, point of view etc).
