Magic Realism is the sweet spot between realism and the fantastic. In this course, you will read short works and excerpts from foundational magic realism authors such as Virginia Woolf, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Diane Williams, Kurt Vonnegut, and more. You will also build writing and craft techniques tailored to bringing out the best in your character-based magic realism. The goal of this class is to help you further strengthen your knowledge of form and to provide you with the environment to better understand your individual voice so you can apply this to future works.
