Online Creative Writing Workshop

Writing 10 - Introduction to Creative Writing

Spring 2012 - Ticket # 64580

Marjorie Coverley Luesebrink, Instructor

Week 15:  Dialog - 


1.  Assigned Reading:

                 A great Flannery O'Connor short story "Everything that Rises Must Converge."

                 This short story has much to recommend it - the dialog and dialect are excellent!  Also, look at the omniscient narrative voice, the use of resonant detail (the hat, the penny), and the rising tension in the story "discovery."

2. Weekly Exercise: There will be no weekly exercise this week, just a few lecture notes.  I hope that you can put this "Dialog" information to use on a final Workshop piece! 

3.  Online Lecture for Week 15

4.  Class Workshop Critique
