Class Description

"Ready to write some new stories? You’ve come to the right place. In this spin on our classic 6 Weeks, 6 Stories course, we will have one goal: to write and develop three new short stories. Each week, we’ll explore a different short story craft element to inspire our work, reading published examples from authors like Edward P. Jones, Morgan Talty, Alice Walker, Helena Viramontes, Denis Johnson, and others. Through a series of writing and revision prompts, we'll put what we learn from these stories into the construction of our own work

During the first half of class, we’ll write and submit three new short story drafts (with the option of submitting either a flash piece or the beginning of a larger draft, either of which will be no more than 2,000 words), and then work in small feedback groups to offer specific craft-based observations on our stories. In the second half of class, we’ll develop and revise one or all three of our drafts, and then submit ONE of those stories to receive more a comprehensive workshop from the entire class. By the end of the course, we’ll come away with three new stories, as well as at least one revised draft, and the insight and inspiration to help you finish them.
