ENGL 334

Fiction Workshop: Research and the Fiction Writer

Prerequisite: ENGL 106. This course focuses on how fiction writers use the material of the real world - real places, real people, real events - in the fictional universe, considering such questions as how a fiction writer’s research methods and purpose might differ from an historian’s. Students will read and write short stories that arise out of historical or contemporary fact or account and examine how the imagination transforms fact into fiction. Offered alternate years.
