The novel in verse traces its origin to the epic poem, filled with its heroes and battles. Its recent literary resurgence speaks to its ability to provide a voice to marginalized communities. This four-session workshop will bridge the structure and narrative of the novel with the immediacy and imagery of poetry. Participants will consider contemporary examples of the form and begin their own novel in verse.

How does one create a compelling opening to a short story or novel? In this course, we’ll examine not only what makes a good opening sentence, but also what makes a good opening paragraph or scene. We’ll move beyond simply “hooking” the reader and explore strategies for quickly connecting readers with characters. Part of class will be spent exploring these strategies and part will focus on exercises designed to create compelling openings yourself, openings you might one day use in your own fiction.

Students in this class will each have at least one story critiqued by classmates and the instructor in a university-designed salon workshop. They will study craft fundamentals such as characterization, plot, and the function of details. Published stories will be analyzed as models, and exercise prompts will serve as craft practice. Each participant’s voice and style will be nurtured with a focus on ambition, an emerging sense of form, syntactical grace, editing and grammar.
