MFA 681 - Blurred Boundaries: Writing Beyond Genre (3)

This course focuses on modern literary works that cross or combine genres and therefore stand outside the conventions of any single genre. By studying such works, students learn to draw from a variety of models and modes in order to increase their stylistic and structural range. Readings are drawn from genre theory and works such as "short short," the "lyric essay," the "illustrated novel," the "prose poem," and the "novel in verse."
