Course Description

This course examines the publishing of fiction. Specific topics examined are working with creative writers; particular problems of novels, short stories, or collections; genre editing; and formula fiction. The course provides hands-on experience in how to evaluate problems in fiction manuscripts and the various types of editing (structural, stylistic, copy) they require. It focuses on problems that are specific to fiction, such as dialogue, setting, and character development.

Notes

This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.

Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
