GRADUATE COURSES IN SOUTHAMPTON

Stony Brook Southampton: Chancellors Hall or Carriage House (Technology Center)

CWL 520.S01 Forms of Poetry: Prose Poem, Short‐Short, or “Couldn’t Finish,” Amy Hempel
Mondays 2:20 – 5:10 pm (Class #93164)
In this course we will read and discuss short-short stories and prose poems from several countries and centuries, drawing mostly from contemporary examples. Students will write frequently in one or both forms, after we look at the specific requirements of each, a variety of definitions, and differences, and similarities. As one practitioner noted, “The short-short is like a regular story, only more so.”

CWL 510.S01 Forms of Fiction: Beginning the Novel, Paul Harding
Mondays, 5:20 – 8:10 pm (Class #93163)
The beginning may prove the beginning, middle, end; don’t worry; it’s about scale, pace, interrogation, and scene; much of the semester will be devoted to slowing down, settling in, and playing your long game, discovering the cumulative ways that novels earn, form, solidify, maintain, and release meaning, within the realms of total aesthetic freedom and discipline. That balance between: Do whatever you want, while I hold your toes ever so encouragingly to the fire thing.

CWL 535.S01 Writing in Multiple Genres: The Story You Are, Roger Rosenblatt
Tuesdays, 2:20 – 5:10 pm (Class #93243)
Every good writer finds a story or theme that defines the writer’s work, then returns to it again and again. Believe it or not, you can find Portrait of the Artist in Finnegan’s Wake, if you’re willing to devote a year or two to the hunt. In a way, the pursuit of that one story is the pursuit of a life. And no matter how many times or complicated ways you digress from your story, you always return to it because that story also shows your particular strength as a writer. And by writing it, you are playing to your strength.

This course attempts to help you discover and recognize the story you are—to establish it, refine it, and to make that story clear to you, so that when you write it again and again you know what you’re doing, as you become expert in yourself. You’ll write a number of pieces and exercises in different genres. You’ll do reading relevant to the subject. Mainly, you’ll search and forage for the artist you’ll be for the rest of your life. Warning label: You may not find it. . .yet.

CWL 540.S01  (#93166)  The Ways of the Essay: Finding & Transforming Your Personal Material, Hugh Ryan 
Thursdays 5:20 - 8:10 pm
 

No kind of creative nonfiction is as versatile in form or content as the essay, where the narrative “I” can tackle any topic the author’s eye alights on. This versatility, however, is undergirded by a silent promise, guaranteeing our readers that we have some measure of topical authority – a foundation from which to launch our flights of insight. However, “write what you know” shouldn’t be a limitation on the essayist, rather, it should be an injunction for us to learn more. 

In this workshop, we will examine a range of essay forms (personal, braided, and lyric) to see what fits your style and material best. We will explore different research techniques and how to incorporate them into a finished piece – without boring our audience to tears. Our reading will be a mixture of essays and craft-focused works, which may or may not include Namwali Serpell, Jo Ann Beard, Roxane Gay, Darnell Moore, Susan Sontag, Jonathan Lethem, Italo Calvino, Annie Dillard, Joan Didion, Alexander Chee, Natalie Angiers, Ben Ehrenreich, Amy Sohn, Hilton Als, Brandon Taylor, Claudia Rankine, David Sedaris, Geoff Dyer, Meredith Talusan, Brian Blanchfield, and more.

CWL 560.S01 Topics in Literature: Anatomy of the Thriller, Susan Scarf Merrell
Wednesdays, 2:20 – 5:10 pm (Class #93170)
What makes a thriller thrill us, and how can we use that organizational knowledge in the construction of our own fiction, thriller or not? In this course, we will focus on methods for building tension and holding the reader’s interest. Our reading load, which will be heavy, will include writers from around the world: Fyodor Dostoevsky, Richard Condon, Patricia Highsmith, Bram Stoker, William Golding, Octavia Butler, John Lanchester, Ryu Murikami, Suki Kim, Shirley Jackson, Gillian Flynn and Oyinkan Braithwaite.

Hours arranged. Hybrid course (in‐person, Skype, email) (1 credit) (Class #93171)

CWL 510.S60 Forms of Fiction: The Short Story, Susan Minot
Mondays, 5:20 – 8:10 pm (Class #93173)
As our 2013 Nobel Laureate Alice Munro recently said, the short story is “an important art, not just something you played around with until you got a novel.” Focus in this workshop will be on the building blocks of the short story: style, structure and content. In class discussions of student fiction, we will focus on refinement of that style, on varieties of structure, with an eye to finding the subject best suited to each writer. Strong editorial feedback will assist the students in both practicing editing on their fellow students, as well as learning the value of doing draft after draft in order to strengthen and focus the material of his or her concern. Mastery of one’s craft is our goal.

Suggested outside reading will direct students to the masters: Anton Chekhov, Raymond Carver, Lydia Davis, John Cheever, Amy Hempel, Denis Johnson, J.D. Salinger, and Katherine Mansfield, among others. But mostly the concentration will be on student work.

“Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you fall into an open sewer and die.” Mel Brooks
“An amateur thinks it’s really funny if you dress a man up as an old lady, put him in a wheelchair, and give the wheelchair a push that sends it spinning down a slope towards a stone wall. For a pro, it's got to be a real old lady.” Groucho Marx
“What is comedy? Comedy is the art of making people laugh without making them puke.” Steve Martin
“You know, crankiness is the essence of all comedy.” Jerry Seinfeld
“Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies of it.” E.B. White
“Patty Marx is the best teacher in the Creative Writing Program” Patricia Marx

In-class and take-home weekly writing assignments will also be given. The final paper will be an illustrated sequence of each student’s writing during the course. Students will meet at Stony Brook Manhattan or Stony Brook Southampton to share their writing at 11 am, followed by lunch at 1:20 pm, and a museum visit until 5 p.m. Please note: Students should

CWL 540.S60 Creative Nonfiction, Matthew Klam
3 Weekends, Saturdays and Sundays, 10 am – 5 pm, dates TBA.
Most writers need multiple drafts, and when the work succeeds, it does so because the author is entangled, involved, a little obsessed. Great creative nonfiction uses all sorts of techniques and tools, uses the intimacy and intensity of great memoir, the confessional power of a first-person essay, the disruptive surprise of humor. It uses lists, and stretches of pure dialogue, and plenty of straight up reportage and hard-won observation. The best writing can and should come right at us, should defy our expectations. Creative nonfiction can be structured in a classical or experimental way, or a mix of approaches to fit the subject.

We’ll look at examples of the form by Alexandra Fuller, Jon Krakauer, Mary Karr, Mary Gaitskill, Rachel Kaadzi Ghanash, John Jeremiah Sullivan, Katherine Boo, and many others. We’ll examine their structure in the way a carpenter might study a beautiful house. We’ll look at half page essays and eyewitness accounts, masterworks of longform journalism, essays, chapters of books, comics by Allison Bechdel and Adrian Tomine, sections of plays, and whatever else inspires us. How is it that some writers are able to create real character development and tension in a few lines or pages? We’ll talk about that too. In this class we’ll write, read, and discuss, while also workshopping your pieces-in-progress in a helpful, constructive manner.

Please note that additional class time will be arranged with instructor.

FLM 510.S60 Film History I: European Auteurs Film Survey, Lenny Crooks (3 cr)
Tuesdays, 8:20-11:10 pm (Class #96495)
There is an identifiable European way of filmmaking. It has nothing to do with style or genre (although Action films are few and far between). Rather it is about process and priority. Regarding process, there are so many sources of public funding for development that for most distributed films have the writer will have been paid for several drafts. As regards  priorities, the director is considered the most important element in a film's creation. So much so that many films are financed on artistic merit without undue consideration of the box office potential of lead cast members. Regardless of who has written the script, a director who has achieved distinction is considered the author or 'Auteur'. At two-week intervals we will screen and discuss a film followed by an analysis of the director's body of work.
