Structure & Design

Samuel Delany famously remarked that he never thinks about plot—only character and structure. Through writing exercises and class discussion, we'll look in detail at the different levels of structure available to us. How should we think about the amount of information in a paragraph, the time dilation of a scene, or the pacing of a chapter? Students will come away with a solid toolbox of strategies for making structural decisions and thinking about design in their own writing.
