Learning from the Masters

Intermediate | We’ll engage in a close reading of several short stories by four short story masters (Anton Chekhov, James Baldwin, Alice Munro, and Yiyun Li), garnering lessons from their fiction on how to build and improve our own stories. Generative writing exercises will further our explorations of the techniques and stylistic choices of our model texts. A list of texts and a syllabus will be provided prior to the first session of class.

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

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
