Course Overview

Online Fiction Writing Courses

This course connects students interested in creative writing (primarily short fiction) and provides a space for supportive and constructive feedback. Students gain experience in the workshop model, learning how to effectively critique and discuss one each other's writing in an online environment. In addition to developing skills as readers within a workshop setting, students strive to develop their own writing identities through a variety of exercises.

International Connection: The Globalization of Creative Fiction Writing

This Online Fiction Writing Course capitalizes on the geographic diversity of the students by eliciting stories that shed light on both the commonalities and differences of life experiences in different locations. Additionally, we read and discuss the work of authors from around the globe.

Students’ Essential Responsibilities Are Twofold:

  1. To engage in the class as readers and writers and
  2. To focus on their development as readers and writers

Both require active participation in discussions of various formats within our online community, as well as dedicated time outside of class reading and providing constructive feedback on one another’s work and writing original pieces for the workshop.
