Spring 2020 Online: Strange Stories: Putting the Uncanny in Your Fiction

April 27 - May 18th
online with Wet Ink

This class will take place online, using Wet Ink, a popular online platform for classes. Registered students will receive a link to access the class four days before it starts.

A four week online fiction class. The unusual is thriving in contemporary storytelling. Maybe art is imitating our strange times. Looking at stories from writers such as Kelly Link and A.S. Byatt, we will consider how the strange can get us closer to the truth. Plan to draft two stories and discuss one of those stories with the class.

Please note: Wet Ink is different from Zoom for online classes in that there is not a “live” option. Students do not “attend” class at a set time, but rather, access lectures, readings and other materials and respond through email and discussion boards. Contact Susan Moore at susan@literary-arts.org if you have questions.

SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE: Scholarships pay for the entire class tuition. All of our writing classes have at least one scholarship position available, made possible by a generous gift from Dennis Steinman. To apply, email Susan Moore, Director of Programs for Writers, at susan@literary-arts.org with your name, contact information, and list 1-3 classes in order of preference. Please note that preference is not guaranteed. All scholarships are subject to availability.
