ENGL 4702 - Fiction Writing 3: The Outsiders: Reading and Writing Fiction about Outsiders, Outcasts, Exiles, and Rebels
Instructor: Stacey D'Erasmo
Rose Hill Campus, Tuesdays/Fridays: 2:30 - 3:45 p.m.
Advanced Fiction Workshop, Prerequisite: Writing sample application
It is often those on the margins of society who have not only the most interesting vantage point on the center, but who also have extraordinary stories of their own to relate. In this class, we will read, generate, and write fiction concerning folks on various cultural edges. We will read work by, among others, S.E Hinton, James Baldwin, Chinelo Okaparanta, Mary Gaitskill, Yoko Tawada, Paul Beatty, and Tayeb Salih. With any luck, these writers will inspire your own fiction as well.

ENGL 3967 - Creative Nonfiction Writing 2: Writing the World
Instructor: Lenny Cassuto
Lincon Center Campus, Thursdays, 6:00 - 8:45 pm
Intermediate Creative Nonfiction Workshop, Prerequisite: Writing sample application
In this writing workshop, we’ll discover and develop the vital spark of imagination in the realm of nonfiction. You will take your eye—and your “I”—in search of subjects outside of yourself. The world is our subject; together we’ll seek topics in people, things, and ideas. You’ll move from shorter writing tasks to longer and more involved ones, while reading published essays to accompany your own work.
