COMP 371 - Advanced Fiction Workshop 3 s.h.

An advanced course in fiction writing, which involves directed writing, discussion of contemorary short fiction, and workshop of student writing. Workshop of student writing involves discussion of the merits and need for revision in short stories submitted by students in class.  Each story is between 6 and 24 pages in length and requires between 20 and 50 minutes to workshop, depending on length and complexity.  Students read the stories in advance of class and prepare written responses in advance, which they then further develop and elaborate in class in discussion with other students.  Students are trained in the conventions and aesthetics of contemporary fiction in preparation for workshop participation.  Workshops may involve a combination of group-focused and full-class discussions. A-E only. Offered once every two years.
