6 Weeks, 6 Stories at GrubStreet
June 8 @ 10:30 am - July 13 @ 1:30 am$355 – $370
Whether you want to expand your knowledge, experiment with new forms, or just produce fresh work, this fun, intensive class will give you the opportunity, over six weeks, to begin six new short stories and/or write new material as a basis for longer work. Each week, through a series of directed, in-class writing exercises, you will explore plot, form, character, theme, setting, and language. Students will share work with one another for in-class workshop sessions. Classes will also include craft discussions and reading of contemporary, published stories that will serve as models for analysis. Authors and readings might include authors such as Can Xue, Jenny Bhatt, Pitchaya Sudbanthad, Valeria Luiselli, Edward P. Jones, Rebecca Makkai, and a wide array of flash pieces from the Wigleaf Top 50 and elsewhere.
