Six Month Short Story Intensive

January 11–June 7, 2023 (twenty-two sessions)Wednesdays, 12:00–2:00 p.m.

This class is for experienced writers who are dedicated to starting the first draft of a story collection over the course of six months. Participants should have experience writing stories and familiarity with the elements of literary short fiction including scene, character, conflict, place, and revision. We will study individual stories by authors, read craft essays, and discuss several published collections and how the stories unite to form a book.
