In this advanced fiction writing course, students will study the art of literary fiction through exercises, short-shorts and a full length story. Pre-requisite: WR 224. Our sessions will involve the discussion of and written responses to student writing, along with weekly written analyses of contemporary short fiction.
*Note: be prepared to pay for copying of your workshop story for all members of the class.
