ENGLISH 307-B : Advanced Creative Writing: Fiction II


Some stories run uninterrupted from start to finish, like the exhalation of a single breath or a toy car zipping under the couch. Other stories seek to delay, meander, or fragment using various devices, one of which is breaking the narrative into sections or parts. This course will explore some of the different ways that authors have used this approach, why they did so, and how the strategy affects a story's structure, pace, and ambition.

For students who have completed at least one course in fiction writing, the course will provide further study of matters of technique and structure. The course builds on the premises, assignments, and goals of English 307-A, but students may enroll without having completed that course. May not be audited or taken P/N.

Prerequisite: ENGLISH 207 or 307-A or comparable courses in creative writing with permission of instructor. Students who have not completed ENGLISH 207 or 307-A should obtain instructor's consent and confirmation of appropriate writing experience. Please send an email to the professor with your writing background to request a permission number once registration for spring quarter has opened.
