dc.description.abstract Fantasy literature has grown in popularity over the last ten years, becoming both a part of pop culture as well as a part of the literary canon. Series such as the Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter have introduced much of the reading world to the wonders of fantasy literature. However, in traditional fiction classes, fantasy is considered genre writing and is frowned upon. Contained within this thesis are the plans for an Honors colloquium in fantasy writing. This class combines both reading and writing fantasy literature. After taking this colloquium, students should gain a better understanding of creating and reading fantasy literature, as well as learning more about themselves as writers.
