ENGL 263

Fiction Workshop: The Love Story

Prerequisite: ENGL 106. There are as many different kinds of love story as there are different kinds of love: between parent and child, between siblings, between spouses, between friends, between people and places or people and objects. Are all love stories necessarily tragic? How does a writer avoid the danger of sentimentality? What about writing about sex? Students will write their own love stories over the semester and read short fiction that will enlarge and enrich their definitions of love. Offered alternate years. III.O, III.W, V.6b
