WR 375  Writing Seminar I: Short Prose Forms

This seminar will examine the genre of short prose forms - the prose poem, the short-short story, the lyrical essay and the micro story, among others. Students will take a close look within each of the forms to glean some of their essential qualities. Furthermore, they will lightly touch on the relationship between this genre and its literary antecedents, thus placing it in a tradition. Students will consider how prose writers can better employ the poet’s tools: sound, image, metaphor, syntax and diction, voice, meditation and narrative. MU Core category: Creative Arts. 4 crs.
