We’ll catch up on our reading, covering two great short stories — one a classic and one its contemporary mate — each week. We’ll discuss the stories in depth, looking for their parallels and considering the role of literary influence in contemporary short fiction. We’ll read both stories each week as examples of excellence in literature, but also as models of craft, making this a great course for readers and writers alike.
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.
