Faculty Highlights - David Kress

David Kress

It’s the first class after spring break, and Dave Kress is checking in with the undergraduates in his Advanced Fiction Writing class. The conversation drifts from fashion to pizza before shifting gears to a series of quotations from the French director Jean-Luc Godard.  For Kress, the study of fiction and creative writing isn’t solely an academic exercise. It gives students a way to respond to today’s world. “I think an understanding of how fiction works is very crucial to surviving today. If everything is scripted, if everything is highly fictionalized, you won’t mistake it for what it isn’t.”
