Class Info

Studying and Writing From the Short Story

The goal of this workshop is to learn and engage with the short story. In a 4-week/class setting, students will read aloud and discuss four short stories to engage with the craft of the writing. Generative exercises/activities will also play a role in each class, as students will have the opportunity to create work that stems from the readings and the discussions during class. All stories are available for free online and offer a distinct range of styles and voices for students to interact with.

Stories: Kristen Arnett/ “Felt In The Jaw”, Alice Munro/ “Voices”, Brandon Taylor/ “Wool”, and Charles Yu/ “The Future of Work: Placebo”

What To Bring:

Computer or notebook to be able to write.
