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 begin six new short stories 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 share work with one another for in-class workshop sessions. Classes will also include craft discussions and reading of contemporary, published stories that will serve as models for analysis. Authors and readings might include authors such as Can Xue, Jenny Bhatt, Pitchaya Sudbanthad, Valeria Luiselli, Edward P. Jones, Rebecca Makkai, and a wide array of flash pieces from the Wigleaf Top 50 and elsewhere.

This class will be hosted using live Zoom meetings! You will be able to participate in class via Zoom videoconference from wherever you’re most comfortable. All you’ll need is a laptop or a phone! 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 via Zoom–no need to download anything or sign up for Zoom in advance! If you have questions about remote learning, please feel free to reach out to [email protected] for more information.

For a glimpse at how remote learning works, look no further than the deep Zoom discussion of writing and literature below:
