Whether you want to expand your knowledge, experiment with new forms, or just produce fresh work, this fun, intensive class will give you the opportunity, over four weeks, to write four new short stories (300 to 1000 words) and/or write new material as a basis for longer work. Each week, through a series of directed, in-class writing exercises, we will explore character, story, time, theme, setting, and language. Students will bring copies of their completed stories to class each week where they will read them aloud and receive on-the-spot feedback in brief workshop sessions. Classes will also include craft discussions and reading of contemporary, published stories that will serve as models for analysis. 

Class Format

This class will take place using Zoom videoconferencing. About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting!
