Information on how to write and publish fiction will be presented in “Writer’s Workshop in Fiction” (ENGL 4050), a course offered this summer through the University of Wyoming/Casper College (UW/CC) Center.
Part-time instructor Patrick Amelotte will lead students in reading fiction works, including short story classics by Ray Carver, Richard Ford, Yukio Mishima, Edna O’Brien and Anton Chekov. While learning the art of naming characters, writing dialogue and creating narrative, students will write their own stories, which will be reviewed by classmates in a workshop format.
Amelotte will discuss the mechanics of getting published, including how to write query letters and where to send manuscripts.
“By the end of the class, students will have compiled three lists of publishing companies to send their manuscripts – an A-list, a B-list and a C-list,” says Amelotte.
