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.
Kirsten Sundberg Lunstrum is the author of two books of short fiction-- This Life She's Chosen and Swimming With Strangers (both published by Chronicle Books).

She taught creative writing at Purchase College, SUNY from 2008-2012, and now teaches as an adjunct faculty member at several schools in the Seattle area.
