CRWT 239 Growing Up and Growing Old

3 credits 45.0 hours
200 level undergraduate course

One of the most challenging aspects of developing authentic characters is not only capturing the impress of time but reflecting the ways different stages of life dictate how characters feel, think, and behave. This requires close observation as well as an understanding of how changing social norms and linguistic development determine how characters perceive their world. This craft seminar will consider work that reflects those different stages–childhood, adolescence, middle and old age–and consider how different narrative strategies, from flashback and voice to sentence length and word choice, can be used to evoke these shifting points of view.
