Course Description: Welcome! This introductory course will begin by establishing and examining the basic concepts and techniques of crafting prose fiction before moving into a study of some of its more sophisticated elements. Students should expect to read a wide range of examples from classic and contemporary fiction and to discuss the craft techniques demonstrated in each text.
