The Nuts and Bolts of Fiction (CWRI 1179)

Writing fiction means developing craft, and this means understanding and executing the fundamentals of a story such as character, dialogue, plot, setting, voice, and theme. In this course, we will examine each of these aspects of fiction and how an understanding of these fundamentals can lead to stronger writing. This course is for both beginning writers who want to learn how to write fiction and writers who have studied fiction before but want to re-visit these elements. The coursework combines lectures, discussion, writing prompts, and a final story workshop.
