This course is designed for writers interested in learning more about the craft of writing fiction for young adults. Students will examine published short stories and novels in the classic and contemporary canon for readers ages 12-17, as well as present their own work and critique the work of others. Students will explore some of the subgenres of young adult fiction in more depth, including science fiction and fantasy, edge, and horror, and study how the major themes relevant to teen readers are addressed in those subgenres. Students may choose to work on a series of short stories or on a longer, novel-length piece. (Prerequisite: ENGL 101C or equivalent with a grade of “C” or higher, or permission of the Department Chair of English.)
