Collins Living Learning Center | Sex, Dreams and Altered States
L200 | 17398 | Alexander Weinstein
In this course we will explore fiction writing and develop our abilities to write about Sex,
Dreams And A.S.C. These three subjects, inherent to life, are often left undiscussed and
hence unexplored in fiction writing classes. This course aims to help writers gain comfort
and confidence in writing about these important aspects of life. It is often through these
subjects that fictional characters come alive, plot is developed, and more complex
themes/emotions emerge. We will read and write a lot throughout the semester, producing
short stories, sharing our work with the class, and learning how to edit each other's writing.
No previous writing experience is necessary, only enthusiasm, creativity, and the willingness
to fully engage in the art of fiction.
