Yearlong in Short Story

The short story remains arguably the best medium through which a fiction writer hones their craft, and in this class that's exactly our aim. We'll read, write, discuss, and critique short fiction with equal parts rigor and vigor. Ours isn't some dry, lifeless affair—fiction's too good for that. Instead, expect lively exchanges of ideas, stimulating writing prompts, literary experiments, and occasional baked goods. Also expect mind-blowing readings from George Saunders, Zadie Smith, Carmen Maria Machado, Ottessa Moshfegh, and many more.

No class on 11/8, 12/20, 12/27, 1/3, 4/4, & 4/11.
