BEYOND THE ART OF THE NOVEL: Uncovering the craft of long-form fiction in a "flash" 

In this course we will look at the elements of fiction that keep a reader engaged for 300 pages. Structure, narrative arc, metaphor as cohesive thread, viewpoint, and characterization. The goal will be to produce a piece of flash fiction that resembles a novel within the span of five pages. Be prepared to put your imagination to work, get creative, and write.
