Advanced Short Story

Advanced | Students who have completed Fiction I and II or have a similar level of experience will be ready for this class. We will workshop one story at a time with an emphasis on learning from the craft of a student’s piece. Lessons will be tailored to the issues in each student’s story. We’ll learn the Critical Response Process, an anti-oppressive feedback strategy that allows the writer to receive the feedback that is most useful to the story. We’ll build our tools of fiction while also bending them, questioning them, and reenvisioning what’s possible in storytelling. As time allows, we’ll also examine published work that inspires and instructs.

Payment plans available. Contact registrar@hugohouse.org for more information.
