HC 421H : Lie to Me: Techniques in Prose Fiction

Professor: Ulrick Casimir

4.00 credits

• CRN 13119: Tuesday & Thursday, 1415-1545 @ This course will be held remotely

The goals of this course are deceptively simple: to refine your understanding of the rudiments and mechanics of fiction writing, and to foster the development of habits vital to the future production of solid, expressive prose (which includes but is not limited to literary prose), beyond the confines of this course.  These interconnected goals require both close reading and artful writing, and we will be doing a good deal of both in this class.  But this is primarily a workshop course, meaning that the majority of our class meetings will be dedicated to ensuring that all students have the opportunity to receive well-considered, constructive criticism and feedback, from their instructor and their peers, on their fiction writing.
