Yearlong in Short Story [Ramon Isao]
Whether you are early in the writing process or already have a rough draft, yearlong courses will help you set active, clear goals, as well as write and revise with intention. One-third of each course focuses on developing proficiency with the writing tools (craft elements) that you will need to use, and the remaining two-thirds are comprised of workshops and writing toward personally devised deadlines.
It is okay to miss some classes because of travel. That said, students who get the most out of yearlong classes are often very dedicated to their writing, and are eager to develop a strong and steady writing practice, as well as become part of a tightly knit cohort of writers.
Join award-winning writer Ramon Isao in a yearlong version of one of Hugo House’s most popular classes. We’ll read, write, and respond to short fiction with equal parts rigor and vigor. Expect lively discussions, swoon-worthy readings, stimulating exercises, and oft-bizarre literary experiments. Expect to dig into the craft, mechanics, and art of writing better fiction. Finally, expect masterworks from the likes of George Saunders, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Zadie Smith, Junot Díaz, Joy Williams, Haruki Murakami, and many more!
