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.

WATCH: 10 best ‘Simpsons’ episodes

In this photo released by Fox, Homer explains why he wants to bring back the annual 4th of July fireworks display, after it's cancelled for budget reasons, in the "Yellow Badge of Cowardge" Season Finale episode of "The Simpsons," in May 2014. The full 25-year run of "The Simpsons" will arrive on cable channel FXX with a summer marathon, to be paired this fall with a digital extravaganza that could turn other TV shows yellow with envy. "I'm not going to over-promise, but I think this website will provide you with affordable health care," longtime "Simpsons" executive producer Al Jean told a TV critics' meeting Monday, July 21, 2014.

The recent marathon of all 552 episodes of "The Simpsons" inspired us to sit down and come up with our 10 favorite episodes. Enjoy!
