ENGL 384
Advanced Fiction Workshop Spring 2024
Division I

Class Details

This course will help more advanced fiction writers improve their skills in a supportive workshop context, which encourages experimentation and attention to craft. We focus on technique, close reading, and the production of new work. Writers submit manuscripts for discussion, receive feedback from peers, and revise their work. They keep a process journal and practice mindfulness to cultivate powers of focus and observation. We read Reading Like a Writer by Francine Prose, and short fiction by authors in different genres. (This workshop will be taught by Ruth Ozeki, author of A Tale for the Time Being and the Book of Form and Emptiness.)
