CW 120 - Narrative in Prose


Requirement Fulfillment: Fulfills requirement in the CW major, minor, and concentration.
Delivery: Lec/Lab
This foundation course is a critical study of the elements of narrative structure and design in the short story, such as character development, point of view, tone, setting, plotting, and time management. Through both seminars and writing workshops, the class combines the critical study of published writing and the development of student work to learn how narrative not only affects the short story, but becomes the short story. Students will be exposed to essential works by writers such as, James Baldwin, Raymond Carver, Anton Chekhov, Tim O’Brien, Flannery O’Conner, John Updike, and Alice Walker. Creative expectations are no more than two revised short stories that fully reflect the focused study of the course. Minimum Passing Grade: N/A
