ENCW 301 - Fact into Fiction: The Writer as Explorer


CR: 3
Prerequisite: ENCW 101 or a 200-level ENCW course. This course focuses on how fiction writers use the material of the real world - real places, real people, real events - in the fictional universe, considering how a fiction writer’s research methods and purpose differ from an historian’s. Students will explore the many ways - including through images, film, and virtual reality - information is gathered for successful fictional world-building. Students will read classic and contemporary works, complete analytical assignments, write short stories that arise out of historical or contemporary fact and examine how the imagination transforms fact into fiction. III.W, V.2, V.6b
