How the Story Goes: An Intermediate Fiction Workshop [Kirsten Lunstrum]

This class will take off from the foundations of short fiction and examine what has made the best stories the best. Francine Prose’s Reading Like a Writer will guide an intensive study of technique in fiction, then the class will apply that study to a sampling of some of the finest short fiction there is. Included in the readings will be canonical short fiction (stories by Nabokov, Chekhov, Joyce, and others), as well as contemporary classics (stories by Lorrie Moore, Karen Russell, and Anthony Doerr, among others). We will also, of course, workshop your own short fiction.
