Creative Writing 3: Narrative Fiction - ENGL307

This unit is suited to students who wish to develop skills and confidence with their writing of narrative, either in the short story or novel genre. In addition to weekly writing tasks, students will write two to three short stories or two thematically linked novel chapters. The unit is taught through a combination of lectures; readings in narrative studies and examples of short fiction; and workshops of student writing. Narrative studies topics include focalisation, management of time, scene structures, speech and dialogue. Assessment takes into account each student's creative work, weekly writing exercises, discussion and analysis of the readings, weekly attendance and participation, and the student's workshop and discussion skills. Assessment is ongoing throughout the semester.
