Class Details

A course for students with experience writing fiction and an understanding of the basics of plot, character, setting, and scene. Through close study of stories in both traditional and unusual forms, we’ll examine how a story’s significant elements are chosen, ordered, and arranged; how the story is shaped; how, by whom, and to what purpose it’s told. Students will write new stories, employing the forms and techniques studied, and discuss them in workshop.
