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. We will devote a portion of each class to discussions of master stories, as well as to careful readings and discussions of stories by the members of the workshop. Exercises will be assigned each week 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.
