Creative Writing: A Guide and Glossary to Fiction Writing

All writers are familiar with terms like plot, suspense, conflict and character. They may be less familiar with intertextuality, anachrony, and fabula, and they may be even less confident in achieving the effects these terms refer to. This book defines fictional techniques and guides the potential writer in their use.

SC4 Writing Center

The Writing Center offers tutoring sessions with student writing consultants who can help you through every step of the writing process.

Assistance is available for any class.
