The goal of this creative writing exercise is to write an alternate ending to one of several stories that we have read throughout the semester. The writing of this alternate ending should take into consideration other readings that have been seen in class, as well as audiovisual materials and discussions. The stories will be five pages long.
This is an opportunity for you to engage with the class topics in a critical way through creativity, and thus demonstrate how each of you formulates innovative and interesting ways of thinking about topics covered during the course. We have seen how various authors, theorists, and filmmakers have represented the great events and themes that their countries experienced, and now it is your turn to see how you interpret and understand them today starting from creative fiction.
This is a creative exercise whose purpose is to make us think and put into practice the difficult task of giving shape to how we see, understand, and feel the historical events of the continent Latin American.
Finally, it is important to keep in mind the formal and technical elements of creative writing, as we have done when analyzing fictional texts in class (narrative voice, plot,setting, characters, conflict, time, etc.) when writing their stories.
