CRW 235 Beyond the Short Story

Creative writing courses generally focus on the art of the short story, but how do writers develop their craft beyond the stand-alone short story? This course advances storytelling skills by exploring techniques used in other narrative forms. Novellas, short story cycles, and graphic narratives are just a few of the forms we’ll study. Examination of published works, weekly writing assignments, and major projects give students multiple opportunities to experiment with different forms of writing, while honing their own narrative craft. At end of the term, students submit a portfolio of creative work that shows how their writing has gone beyond the short story. Ideal for students who have completed a college-level fiction workshop.
