About

This Fiction Writing (Online) course from Stanford Summer is taught entirely online, but retains the feel of a traditional classroom. Optional synchronous elements such as discussion and virtual office hours provide the student direct interaction with both the instructor and his/her classmates. Feedback on written work – both offered to and given by the student – is essential to the course and creates class rapport.

Programme Structure

The course will begin by studying a selection of stories that demonstrate the many techniques writers use to create fictional worlds; we’ll use these stories as models for writing exercises and short assignments, leading to a full story draft. We will study figurative language, character and setting development, and dramatic structure, among other elements of story craft. Then, each student will submit a full draft and receive feedback from the instructor and his/her classmates.
