Fall Session 2021

Writing Workshop I

Online Course | Course code: EN214-V1 | CRN: 41264 | Credits: 3 | Seats: 15 / 20

This course runs from September 07, 2021 to December 23, 2021

This course is designed to introduce students to the basic elements of writing fiction. Students read and discuss each other's short stories in a workshop environment. The purpose of this workshop is to encourage students to shift their perspective from that of readers (an interpretive approach to fiction) to that of writers (a functional approach to fiction). The emphasis is on how a short story works as opposed to what a short story means. The focus is on the development of narrative technique to enhance the awareness of thematic content, enabling students to better express a wider range of thoughts and emotions. Prerequisite: C or better in EN 111 or permission of instructor.
