Students may take "Reading and Writing the Short Story" two times.
This short story workshop is designed for the writer who believes that there is as much to be learned from reading the works of others as from writing their own stories. Master story readings will be assigned each week so that we can develop a common canon. Exercises will be assigned in the early weeks of the term as a way of developing and reinforcing each writer’s relationship to literary craft. Each writer will also present her or his own stories in class. Workshop members are required to participate actively in classroom critiques.
