The official Rowan catalog entry for this course can be found here.
This class will provide a forum for students to explore the strategies fiction writers use in creative expression, especially in writing the short story. Students will develop an analytical vocabulary that allows them to read, interpret, and evaluate the work of other fiction writers. A major portion of the class will be given over to workshop sessions, where students can share and evaluate each other's work. Students will also become familiar with a body of published short stories that illustrate techniques of expression such as setting, point of view, characterization, dialogue, and other elements of fiction.
