This unit introduces students to the steps involved in producing polished works of fiction and creative non-fiction: generating ideas through writing exercises, improving work through redrafting, and refining work through copy-editing. Lectures will focus on foundational aspects of writing craft – such as narrative structure, voice, language, dramatization and exposition– and include analysis of published works of literary fiction and creative non-fiction. In workshops, students will receive critical feedback on their own work and develop skills in critiquing the work of their peers.
