Tired of workshopping the same stories? Can't come up with new plots or characters? All writers go through this, but here’s a way to shake up your writing world. In this often-sold-out workshop, you will write both brand-new complete stories, ranging from 300 to 1,500 words, and/or brand-new beginnings of longer stories. Each week, you'll be given a different exercise to explore an interesting and tighter way to write plot, character, setting, and language, and you will get quick, on-the-spot feedback on what you've written from both the instructor and fellow students. Classes will also include craft discussion and/or discussion of published contemporary stories.

We'll discuss works by writers such as:

  • Italo Calvino
  • Amelia Gray
  • Julio Cortazar
  • Charles Baxter
  • Toni Morrison
  • Milan Kundera

The goal is to leave the class with new beginnings, a few complete short-shorts, and at least one revised piece to submit for publication. Recommended for students who’ve taken Fiction I or an equivalent.

This class combines support and encouragement with extremely constructive commentary on the students' writings. It was fun and immensely helpful!
