About this course:

This course is designed for students who want to examine gay men’s lives in fiction and nonfiction. Discussions will include basic milestones that have defined much of gay life, such as coming out, sex, partnership, and the AIDS crisis. We will explore what messages writing about gay men’s lives brings to those outside our experience, as well as ways we can communicate across this divide. Students will read and discuss the best examples of gay fiction/nonfiction in order to integrate their qualities into our own work, striving to say something new and fresh in a very crowded and well-established field. By the end of the course, students will have written three works of fiction and nonfiction, and a substantial revision of one of those pieces.
