LTWR 100 (A) - SHORT FICTION WORKSHOP
The Magic and The Mundane
Instructor: Melissa Chadburn
This will primarily be a generative writing workshop with an emphasis on stories that feature elements of magic yet remain grounded in the mundane. A generative writing workshop cuts through everyday use of language. It makes the writer beautifully uncomfortable, on the other side of that discomfort the students of this class will find a break-through to the core of what their writing is. The unpracticed bloody heart of it all. This course is not about what you have written but what you will write. A generative class in writing keeps you moving forward. As in any good story it beckons you forward— line by line. This will be our very first attempts of making the unknown known.
