MWF 12:20 PM – 1:15 PM
This course will explore the related cross-genre forms of prose poetry and its newer variant, flash fiction (a.k.a. short short fiction, microfiction, etc.), analyzing the characteristics each genre shares and what differentiates them. In addition to reading literary works in each genre, students will experiment with writing their own pieces in these forms and consider the role of characterization, plot, imagery, and music in each.
