ENG 226 Fiction Writing on Tuesdays 5:30-8:15 p.m.
Write the best story you know. Then write it again, from a different point of view. Write it as an order! Write it from an indifferent observer's point of view, reliably. Write it from a purely biased protagonist's point of view, unreliably. Be like Poe and make your reader question the narrator's sanity. Be like Woolf and have your reader marvel at the narrator's lyrical brilliance. We will study how varying points of view have the power to frame narrative for different effects. Perspective determines how the story is told. Revision -- re-envisioning the original -- often provides the best opportunity for reframing the original work in a new and more successful way. Using the POINTS OF VIEW anthology, we will sample stories with participant narrators, observer narrators, letter narration, diary narration, multiple first-person narration, steam-of-consciousness and many other approaches.
Bio: Annie Dawid's two collections of stories, AND DARKNESS WAS UNDER HIS FEET and LILY IN THE DESERT all contain examples of varying points-of-view narration. Her novel, YORK FERRY, works as a short-story cycle with multiple narrators. Her most recent publications and awards also sample unusual points of view. BEST NEW WRITING 2014 has award-winning flash fiction by Dawid and other writers. Another flash fiction story won the Orlando Award from A Room of One's Own Foundation and was published in LOS ANGELES REVIEW. Her essay, "All Thy Waves," won the Dana Award in the Essay 2012, and "Gunplay," won the New Rocky Mountain Voices Award in 2013 and was given its debut performance at the Jones Theater in Westcliffe, CO, where she lived for a decade before moving to Monument.
