Alternate Realities in Short Fiction

Intermediate | This class will focus on short stories that slightly shift reality in order to magnify our awareness of social constructs and the human condition. How do we create and write within worlds that are marginally bent by elements of magic, science fiction, dreams, and fantasy? In addition to discussing stories by authors such as Zadie Smith, Karen Russell, and Carmen Maria Machado, we’ll also undertake in-class and take-home writing exercises to generate new work within this genre.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
