Adv. Short Story Workshop

Spring 2019

Taught By: Alexandra Shelley

Section: A

CRN: 2502

Credits: 3

This workshop is for short story writers who already know the rules and want to break them. Through exercises and class discussion, students experiment with new voices, push the envelope of form, plumb memory, and work at taking greater emotional risks. Stories by workshop members are read prior to each class session to provide the author with both written critique and focused class discussion. The aim is to revise the story until it's as good as it can be. Workshop members also give a group reading and polish at least one piece that can be submitted to magazines. Readings of stories, poetry, and drama introduce the class to contemporary writers who are not in the usual anthologies.
