Prose Writing Workshop (EASM166)
This module offers you an opportunity to present and discuss your own prose writing in a weekly two-hour workshop. The draft work may include fiction and non-fiction, both in the short form (e.g. short story, creative essay) and in the long form: book-length fiction (literary and genre novels); non-fiction (biography, autobiography, memoir, travel writing, etc.); and cross-genre forms such as autobiografiction and the non-fiction novel. The workshop format of practical criticism will be alert to the formal requirements and structural challenges of different genres. Secondary reading tailored to each project, as well as appropriate works of criticism and theory, will widen conceptual understanding and feed into workshop discussion.
