COURSE DESCRIPTION: This class explores various narrative forms through which stories are told and teaches students both verbal and written story-telling skills. Individual class sessions examine the oral tradition of myths and ghost stories, as well as traditional genres of short fiction and poetry writing. Students will not only learn how to tell a good ghost story, but will also refine their ability to share personal anecdotes and tell jokes. The written component of this class addresses screenplay treatments, short stories, and lyrical poetry.
