Plot for Poets and Writers of Short Fiction: Writing alongside Lydia Davis
We’ll read the stories of Lydia Davis with an eye to giving our short narratives, whether in poetry or prose, a dramatic arc, and a telling finale. How can we make our tales impossible to put down? Are plot twists transferrable to poetry? We’ll find out. Weekly prompts, instructor feedback, discussion. Text: The Collected Stories of Lydia Davis (Picador).
