MC500 Advanced Narrative (2 credits)
Many artists find themselves at times overwhelmed by the amount of content they want to put in a story; or, they have the feeling that something is wrong or missing—that the story doesn't work. This course will help students swiftly detect what is amiss with their narrative. They will practice writing exercises that will help them overcome creative blocks and address weaknesses in their narrative; they will learn how to construct a plot, develop characters, including the protagonist and antagonist, handle style, and manage a story’s main themes. Graduates of the course will be able to discuss or write about any narrative-based creative work with greater insight, clarity, and confidence. They will also be able to apply this knowledge to their own narrative-based creative works.
