Online Sync Sessions are an integral part of the online learning experience. Additional information about learning concepts and assignments may be discussed and sync sessions offer valuable opportunities for students to interact with their faculty and peers during the term. We encourage all students to attend live, but if they are unable to, sync sessions will be recorded and posted within Canvas to allow for an asynchronous model of success as well.

MCW 413-0 : Fiction Workshop


Students will write and submit for workshop discussion original stories or novel excerpts, write analytical responses, and participate in Socratic inquiry-based craft discussions on multiplicity, non-traditional narrative structures, genre, the manipulation of time, POV and narrative distance, among others. In addition to craft, we will also center and explore the importance of the nearly improvisational moment-by-moment nature of writing. Through selected readings, we will examine various literary histories and traditions from around the world with a particular focus on narratives of unreality and decolonial narratives including Latinx, Latin American, and Afro-Caribbean works.
