The final exam is worth twenty-five points.
For the final, read Dennis Johnson’s “Car Crash While Hitchhiking” as a fiction writing textbook. The story is found on page 292 of Deepening Fiction.
When you write, be specific. Quote the story to support your assertions about it. Your identification of a fiction writing technique taught by the story should be no longer than 500 words. An example effort of your use of the knowledge you find in the textbook/story is also required, but has no word limit. Your use of the knowledge you find might take the form of a hypothetical consideration of how you might use the technique you find, a quotation from your work this semester, or an actual fictional fragment written for the exam.
The final is due on Wednesday, April 27th at 12:50 pm. I will stop collecting the exam after it is due. Turn the exam in by providing me with a hard copy or emailing it to me before then, or attending and writing the exam in person on the 27th beginning at 11:00 am.
