ENG 209 - Writing the Novel II

For students who want or are in the midst of writing a novel. Much like Writing the Novel I, our workshop format will explore such elements of long fiction as scene, character, plot, setting, subplot, etc. We’ll address writing styles and techniques, giving and receiving criticism, revising, and genre. Students will complete a polished draft of the first 10,000 words of their novel or, having taken Writing the Novel, 10,000 polished words of their and the professor’s choice. Writing the Novel I is not a prerequisite for the course, but for those students continuing from WTNI, we will work on fine tuning such elements as secondary characters, humor, mid-novel blahs, stretching the writing muscles, and getting published. For undergraduate Creative Writing minors, this course fulfills the advanced requirement.

Prerequisites: ENG 101, 106, 107, 111, or permission of the Instructor.

Anticipated Terms Offered: Every year
