Program Courses

Please note that course schedules may be amended due to low enrollment, faculty availability, and/or other factors.

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 Writing Workshop


In this graduate fiction workshop, you will continue to develop your creative and critical skills as writers and readers of prose fictional narratives. We are all here with a clear purpose – we want to write better fiction. Every element of the class is designed to help us in this endeavor. We will write fiction, read fiction, and talk about fiction. We will discuss the stories in terms of their craft elements (structure, character development, etc.) and also in terms of their more ineffable qualities (is it moving? thought provoking? etc.). In some ways, the class will be like a shop class. We are building things and seeing if they can stand up on their own. Each week we will discuss the work you submit to the class as well as a published short story.
