Writing a novel can seem like (and often is!) a daunting endeavor, yet writing a short story requires all the same fundamentals: a coherent point of view, well-developed characters, a plot that drives the action, and a setting that accentuates it all. This course will offer an introduction to the basic building blocks of the short narrative. We will closely read some classics of the form, both old and recent, while we develop an understanding of specific craft elements with prompts and exercises. As the course continues, we will learn how to offer and receive constructive critiques and thoughtful feedback on a full-length story draft. By the end of the course, students will have a story draft in hand, many ideas for future stories, and a toolkit of craft techniques for a variety of writing projects. This class will be held online, via zoom.
