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—also known as flash fiction) or write new material as a basis for longer work. Each week, we will submit a short piece of fiction to the group to read and share feedback on, and we will all have the opportunity to be workshopped every week.
We'll also explore elements of craft such as plot, style, character, theme, setting, and point of view through in class writing exercises. And, in order to serve as a mode of analysis for our own work, we'll discuss published pieces by masters of the short form such as Edwidge Danticat, Junot Díaz, Helen Oyeyemi, Lydia Davis, George Saunders, Julio Cortázar, and Clarice Lispector. 

Please Note: Class does not meet on June 13th and July 4th (Independance Day). 

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!
