Writing the Short Story
Good stories don’t just fall from the sky or spring, fully formed, into their creators’ minds; they are the product of conscious choices. As fiction writers, we choose each detail of the worlds we create, each aspect of our characters’ lives, and each event, big or small, that occurs in our stories. In this workshop, we will use craft discussions and critique to focus on these choices, studying the hows and whys of successful fiction. We will read and discuss contemporary short stories, do writing exercises, and each student will have opportunities to have their work critiqued by the group. This class is appropriate for students who have completed at least one short story.
