Writing Powerful Fiction

Writing Powerful Fiction
Every work of fiction employs an implicit speaker, an invented persona independent from the author behind the tale. In this course, students will learn to increase the power of their fiction and release new possibilities by focusing on the building of a strong narrator, perhaps the most crucial tool in a writer’s craft arsenal. We’ll imitate, we’ll play, we’ll create new work. The focus will be on first-person writing but we’ll discuss the third person as well. There will be short writing assignments and an accompanying syllabus of short stories and novel excerpts for study and discussion. (Students must have taken one CRWR 01XX level course)
