Fiction and Nonfiction
What makes good writing?
What separates good stories from boring stories? How can you be sure your voice in unique? In this class we will talk about style, structure, character, and plot, and we will take all that we traditionally know about writing and we will turn that on its head. The instructor will show many examples of books that were written differently, books that are unapologetically themselves, and books that struggle inside neat categories. We live in an era where experimental writing methods are no longer niche or avant guard. Writers lately have been exploding onto the page with not only their content, but their structures, words, and even their genre-bending that have changed what it means to communicate on the page. This workshop will meet every other week, giving students enough time to polish what they've written in class (or something new) to bring to our next class to be read and workshopped with their peers.
