MALS 213 Fiction-Short Story

This course is aimed at those with a special interest in creative writing. Writing experience is preferred, but is not a prerequisite, nor is it necessarily essential that the student know exactly what he or she wishes to focus on. What is required is a commitment to the imaginative exploration of experience and a serious desire to devote oneself to the writing process. Emphasis will be placed on student work, but a large number of published stories and essays will be analyzed as well. Classes will be mostly discussions, with periodic lectures. The aim of the course is two-fold: to help the student understand literary writing from the writer's point of view, and to raise student prose to publishable level or nearly so.
