Special Topic: Writing and Reading Short Stories|
Each week we will be reading two of the class's short stories, in progress or completed, plus a published story. Over the course of the semester, students will complete three stories, length is negotiable. As class participants, students should bring their most thorough and considered observations about the works to the conversation, which means reading both the student pieces and the published stories several times. Students will be writing detailed comments on the manuscripts and an overall critique of at least one double-spaced page.
