Reading as Writers: Crafting the Short Story Collection [Jennine Capó Crucet]

Designed for writers working on a collection of short stories, we’ll closely examine several published story collections to figure out the ways in which a writer structures and orders a book-length collection. We’ll look for patterns instructive to the organization and completion of our own projects, identifying and discussing current trends in short fiction—all with an eye toward eventual publication. While our discussion will mostly center on picking apart prize-winning debut collections, we’ll also do several short exercises pertaining to our own collections-in-progress.
