Short Fiction: From Conception to Completion

Write and devel­op a col­lec­tion of short fic­tion toward build­ing a fin­ished port­fo­lio. Review ele­ments of sto­ry­telling and explore the for­mal pos­si­bil­i­ties of short fic­tion. Assigned read­ings, in-class dis­cus­sions, and short exer­cis­es will help you tap into approach­es that excite you, deep­en your under­stand­ing of process, and amass mate­r­i­al need­ed for sto­ry drafts. You will be asked to share and cri­tique man­u­scripts: this is an oppor­tu­ni­ty to test your work on a focused audi­ence while sharp­en­ing your edit­ing and revis­ing skills.
