Writing Fiction- You will be creating several pieces of writing for the course and sharing this work each week for peer review and instructor comments. At the end of the course, you will submit a portfolio as part of the Final Project, which will showcase all of your revised work. This week, you will be writing a piece of fiction. Choose one of the following aesthetics:• Write a story with a traditional narrative structure, plot, and character development. Make sure the narrative has a clear beginning, middle, and ending. This story should not be taken from real-life events, but it can be very loosely based on your own life experiences. Be sureto use a consistent point of view as outlined in Chapter 3 of the course text. Also, this narrative should be in the realist mode of writing. Your story should be between three and five pages in length.• Write a story that is more experimental in its form and/or use of craft techniques. This narrative can either be metafictional in that it mostly focuses on the act of storytelling itself (see Atwood’s “Happy Endings”), or in that it places an increased focus on its own techniques and form (see Barthelme’s “The Glass Mountain”); it can emphasize language over character development and plot (see Diane Williams’ 21ENG318 Creative Writing COURSE GUIDEstories); or it can use elements of magical realism to break the boundaries of traditional, realistic narrative (see Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s “A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings” and Aimee Bender’s “The Rememberer”). Your story should be between three and five pages in length.You will be submitting this fiction draft for a peer review during Week Three. A final revision of the assignment will be required for the Creative Writing Portfolio portion of the Final Project, which is due in Week Five. The paper must be between three and five pages in length and formatted according to APA style. If you use sources (e.g., in an experimental narrative), be sure to properly cite all of your sources within the body of your paper and on the References page. For APA style guidance and examples, visit Ashford Writing Center’s APA Key Elements.
