Whether your model is Carver or Coover, Kafka or Krantz, your voice and narratives are unique. That doesn't mean you don't have to revise. Fiction II is designed to give intermediate writers, more experienced writers, and those with workshop experience the intensive review and analysis they need to make their stories deeper and sharper. Classes are primarily focused on discussion of student work but may also include writing exercises, instruction on craft issues that arise in participants' writing, and discussion of published stories, including work by such authors as:

Chimamanda Adichie
Roberto Bolano
John Cheever
Edwige Danticat
Mavis Gallant
Ha Jin
Edward P. Jones
Jhumpa Lahiri
Yiyun Li
Daniyal Mueenuddin
V. S. Naipaul
William Trevor

In addition to the class's comments, you will get in-depth written feedback from the instructor. The goal is to write and revise two short stories, up to 25 pages each. While novelists may find the creation of self-contained narratives useful, workshopping novel chapters is discouraged.
