Course Description: New writers have to learn how to appeal to the modern reader who demands a good deal of visualization and drama (think movies). Learn how to incorporate this trend into your writing, while exploiting what the novel and short story do best.  One can attempt to do what movies can never hope to attain - combining physical and psychological dimensions, outside and inside at the same time. Ready for the challenge? It's not easy, but once you can do it, whole worlds open up..... including the chance to get published.

Instructor: Dr Gretel Furner. Oxford University. PhD on the modern novel, University of the Saarland, Germany. Assoc. Professor of German, George Washington University.  Instructor, the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. Since 2003 instructor at WICE in French Literature and History, the Migrant Soul series and Creative Writing.
