School of Consciousness and Transformation MFA 6385 3.00
Of what materials are great fictions made? How does the unit of the sentence or the structure of a story convey information, experience and atmosphere? How can fiction change and enlarge our consciousness as writers and readers? Through close reading of a diverse, international group of short stories and novellas, students in this course will explore form, style, voice, tone, character, action, tension, momentum and time. Coursework includes a craft annotation or a structural analysis of one work of short fiction from the course reader and writing an original short story under its influence.
