Based on students' accumulated knowledge of the elements and technical underpinnings of literary genres, ENG 312 aims to help students gain a deeper practical and theoretical understanding of their own values and aspirations as writers of English. Students are expected to improve their written expression in terms of style, language, vocabulary and creativity with specific focus on metaphorical and figurative aspects of language. Taught in a workshop-based environment the course emphasizes how the process of pre-writing, writing and revision can lead to creative short fiction. Assignments encourage the creation and revision of drafts, and will give students the opportunity to experiment, practice, improve their work, and discuss one another's work with their peers and instructor.
