This six-week class provides the basic fundamentals of the short story—what a short story is and what it isn’t—and how to find inspiration for writing short-form fiction. The class will also consider ways to transform a chapter of a longer work, including memoir, into a self-contained short story. The class includes analysis of the works of others along with in-class and at-home writing exercises. The intention is that writers will produce at least one work that is “completed, but not finished.”
This class will include weekly readings and writing assignments related to setting, characters, narrative structure and plot, language and tone, and point of view.
By the end of these six sessions, writers should have the tools necessary to make and implement decisions regarding their short-from projects that will be close to ready for submitting for publication.
Writers will have time to devote to their own projects and revisions in class through guided exercises; they should plan to share their work with others, a necessary step in revision.
