Course ID:ENGL 4800W. 3 hours.

Students develop skills in fiction writing with a focus on the elements of narrative including plot, point of view, character development, dialogue, and voice. Students complete their own stories, analyze works of literature and one another’s drafts, and complete short writing exercises.
Athena Title:Creative Writing Fiction
Nontraditional Format:The W suffix is used for courses taught as writing intensive, which means that the course includes substantial and ongoing writing assignments that: a) facilitate learning; b) teach the communication values of a discipline—for example, its practices of argument, evidence, credibility, and format; c) support writing as a process; and d) prepare students for further writing in their academic work, in graduate school, and in professional life. Writing instruction and assignments are integral to the class’s learning objectives, and the instructor (and/or the teaching assistant assigned to the course) will be closely involved in supporting students as writers. More specifically, writing-intensive classes: • involve students in informal writing assignments that promote course learning; • stage and sequence assignments to encourage writing as a process of creating and communicating knowledge; • maximize opportunities for guidance, feedback, and revision; • teach the writing conventions that are inseparable from modes of inquiry in a discipline; • make writing a substantive component of the overall course grade to underscore the value of writing to the course, the discipline, and student learning.
