Story Intensive: Assembling and Polishing Toward a Collection

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.
