Spring 2024 Course Details: 

Learn to make facts dance. By employing the imagery of a poet, the drama of a novelist, and the content drive of a journalist, we will craft vivid and compelling and maybe even publishable narratives based on your life and the lives of others. We will study and write both longform and flash, as well as digital and oral forms of CNF. For inspiration, we will read the masters such as Nikesh Shukla, Rebecca Skloot, Jerald Walker, Leslie Jamison, Joe Wilkins, and Jesmyn Ward.  In this class you will hone your storytelling skills, which transfer well to other forms of creative and academic writing, as well as career pursuits.

Students continue to explore the aspects of fiction writing. Through short exercises students learn to create visual scenes, integrate exposition with dramatic scene, and construct convincing characters in believable situations.

Students write short stories and significantly revise them. Through discussion of student writing in a workshop format, as well as reading and responding to short stories by published authors, we'll address the questions: What is a short story? How do we create a world in which the reader is fully involved? Where does the story evoke emotion or meaning?

Additional Course Details: 

It takes a special kind of literary skill to turn killing into an art form. Such writers are known as detective novelists, mystery novelists, or simply crime fiction novelists. They use characterization, plotting, and literary and figurative language to create worlds of murder and mayhem. They draw us in and invite us to identify with the protagonist (who tries to solve the whodunit) or—more unsettlingly—with the perpetrator (who sometimes commits unspeakable acts). 

 We will begin the course by examining the origins of the crime fiction form, using Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes as our archetype. Moving our attention to the United States, we will study Dashiell Hammett's The Maltese Falcon to get a sense of what constitutes detective fiction, comparing it with other examples of the type written both in England and Sweden. England becomes the site of our examination of the mystery novel, where we will analyze "high" forms of the type, written by Agatha Christie and Dorothy L Sayers, comparing the two authors' styles and approaches. The final component of the course scrutinizes the crime fiction form, looking at the French-based American author Patricia Highsmith's The Talented Mr Ripley and the recent work of English novelist Ruth Rendell. There will also be a mini-unit on true crime and comic books.
