Instructor Steven Rinehart
Days W

This class explores the craft of writing, starting with the sentence and ending with the scene. Half of each class is devoted to craft exercises and the remaining half to a traditional workshop approach to discussing student submissions. By the end of the semester we’ll be able to talk intelligently about some of the “micro” parts of a short story or novel, giving the students some practical tools for editing those parts.
