ANGL 3573 is a creative writing course designed for more practised writers interested in exploring the possibilities of the short-story form through reading and practise. Most of the course work is devoted to practical work on writing, but this will be supplemented with close readings and stylistic analyses of a number of texts, and with a consideration of theoretical and practical material written on the short-story. A final story po35rtfolio, short written critiques of student work, an informal oral (or written) presentation of a work from the text, and participation in group work and class exercises will form the basis for evaluation.

Prerequisites : ANGL 1153 and ANGL 1163
