In this course, we will practice and study the craft of writing fiction. We will focus on the basic elements of fiction, and the ways these elements are being used in fiction. We will cover the topics of narrative structure, point of view, characterization, setting, description, plot, conflict, dialogue, fictional “modes” and more. In studying these elements of published fiction- both canonical and contemporary- we will practice them through daily writing prompts, master them through a series of weekly assignments created around the topic of the week, and apply them as we write our own fiction in the second half of the term.
