Class Details

This course is focused on the art and practice of writing fiction. Sessions are divided into workshop and seminar. Workshop: Students will present short fiction or novel excerpts for peer critique and the editorial advice of the instructor. Seminar: We will study published fiction by Latina/o, Latin American, Afro-Diasporic, and other writers, paying close attention to how each author employs narrative elements–characterization, plotting, structure, dialogue mechanics, setting, tone, theme–as well as the values and visions expressed. Regular assignments and in-class exercises will help students further strengthen their narrative skills.
