ENG 200 3 - Fiction I


Fiction I is an introduction to the various elements of fiction: character, setting, plot, theme, conflict, point of view. Fiction I is a workshop, similar to the studio experience in Fine Arts or the lab experience in the sciences. Accordingly, students will learn the methods and routines of this charmed space: experimentation, exploration, interrogation, chance. As writers, they will receive serious responses to their work. As critics, they will learn what to talk about, from words and sentences to class, gender, race and identity. They will also learn how to talk about each other’s work in ways sincere, honest, insightful and constructive. Students will confront concepts such as originality, the new, the authentic. They will begin to write work that is their own and of more than ordinary significance. Group III Humanities/Literature.
