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 six weeks, to write six 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 you will explore plot, form, character, 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. Authors we’ll consider may include but are not limited to Ted Chiang; Colin Barrett, Carmen Maria Machado, Kristin Valdez Quade, Edward P. Jones, Lesley Nneka Arimah.
