This 6-week workshop is open for all those interested in the art of the short story. It will consist of three parts: a) a weekly reading from a supplied reading list, which we will use to discuss the different elements of craft in terms of narrative, structure, genre, tone, narrator, character and theme; b) a weekly in class writing exercise based on the weekly reading; and c) workshopping of participants’ own short stories with a strong focus on completion so that at the end of the course each student will have 1-2 finished stories.
