The course introduces approaches to writing a novel against a background of the form's historical development and the range of its contemporary possibilities. Students will investigate the novel in its contemporary and literary form in order to define and situate the work they wish to write. They will read and analyse several works of literary and genre fiction. Concepts of genre, audience, style, voice, the relationship between fiction and non-fiction, will be explored. Students will learn how to prepare a submission (a workshopped proposal for a novel), including an outline, a chapter or sequence of chapters to final draft stage, and a 'pitch' to present their work to an academic or industry gatekeeper.
