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 until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
