Decades after Salinger’s incredible Franny and Zooey proved linked tales go beyond the confines of a short story and somewhere different than a novel, collections of connected stories are everywhere. We’ll read, discuss, and write linked short stories, starting with Rebecca Curtis’s “Toast” (Harpers, February 2014) and “The Christmas Miracle” (New Yorker, December 2013), then moving on to two stories from Joan Silber’s recent story collection, Fools. Exercises and prompts will get students thinking and writing in linked stories. Students will leave class with at least one pair of linked tales.
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.
