How does one turn a handful of drafted short stories into a finished collection? This class will provide you with the basics of assembling a polished short fiction collection. Class time will be spent looking at two debut collections as models (Junot Diaz’s Drown and Andrea Barrett’s Ship Fever), revising and workshopping your stories, and discussing strategies for shaping a finished collection. Participants should already have four or five (or more) short stories in draft form, and should be prepared to revise.
Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.
If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.
If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.
If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
