ENGL 253 Fundamentals of Fiction Writing
Letter Grade or Pass/No Pass Option
Description: This is an intensive course in fiction-writing techniques. Students read and evaluate fiction using elements of fiction writing as well as contemporary issues. Students write original fiction and submit for class discussion and learn to use criticism offered by the instructor and peers. Critical thinking abilities are applied as students analyze student and master works addressing personal, social, political, and/or cultural issues. Increased writing skills help students who may be interested in a writing-related career, such as publishing, journalism, communications, and education, but also in better understanding literature, and learning to use language successfully.
