It can be hard to figure out what makes a piece of fiction succeed. In this workshop we’ll review each other’s work with a view towards pinning it down. We’ll move beyond the nuts and bolts of creative writing, and focus on refining our stories on a deeper level as well as the process of revision. We’ll also read a selection of published short stories as a way into discussions. Space is limited to eight students, who will be selected from the pool of applicants by the instructor. Applicants will submit a five-page excerpt of the short story they wish to work on during the class. Application deadline extended until December 31. After you have been accepted, you will have ten days to submit your payment.
