This subject was a very fun introduction to writing a short story. It focuses on conventional narrative structure, in addition to researching for fiction. Great for students interested in writing in genres like crime, sci-fi, young adult, and romance. WRIT7050 is not a good option for students interested in literary theory, as it values only a strictly conventional framework for storytelling. Acceptable devices include things like foreshadowing and metaphors, as long as there is no room for interpretation. Students who want to experiment with literary techniques including things like intertextuality, symbolism, theme, and free/indirect, or third-person dramatic narration, or take inspiration from historical literary movements will be graded harshly. These are not recognised as legitimate techniques.
