Altering the Story: A Short Fiction Workshop (ZOOM)

This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.

Introductory/Intermediate | You’re familiar with the basic elements of fiction, but what can you do to reconfigure, reinvigorate, or reframe them? In this course, we’ll read and discuss model texts that approach the major elements of fiction writing (character, point of view, setting, plot, and form/style) with novelty and invention, as well as make our own alterations to traditional short story conventions in weekly exercises. Each participant will have the opportunity to have one short story workshopped. Class texts will be available online.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through the end of 2020.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
