SPRING: Writing the Short Story Workshop w Lee Montgomery | Apr 9 - May 28

The short story is one of the oldest, most flexible forms of storytelling and one of the most interesting. From flash fiction, to experimental, to more traditional forms, the short story gives writers a wide latitude to explore the many possibilities of narrative. A combination of seminar and workshop, students should be prepared to workshop their work twice. The first for initial feedback; the second to take that feedback and finish a revision. Students will also be required to read assigned stories outside of class and lead in-class discussions about issues surrounding techniques such as form, voice, point of view, plot, and character. By reading a variety of accomplished short story writers, we will explore both traditional and nontraditional narrative structures to help writers find an effective framework for the feelings that serve as the original impetus for their creativity. This workshop is open to anyone, but is ideally suited for students with a few stories already under their belt. | Maximum: 12 writers
