All Levels | In this class, we will explore the possibilities of form in fiction, using structural resources such as Jane Alison’s Meander, Spiral, Explode: Design and Pattern in Narrative along with the more traditional (and perhaps archetypal) hero’s (or heroine’s) quest that engages Joseph Campbell’s much-discussed model. As part of our exploration, each of the first three weeks will include readings in form as well as fiction along with a brief craft assignment. During the latter three weeks, writers will submit a story draft or a novel chapter-in-progress for discussion. We will read work by a wide range of writers including Peter Orner, Julia Wickersham, Sarah Shun-lien Bynum, and Helen Oyeyemi.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
