Advanced Fiction Workshop|
This course in short or shortish fiction is for people who have already had an introduction to fictional technique and, preferably, an additional course in creative writing. Students will generate their own writing projects, so self-starters and go-getters only need apply. Readings will be tailored to the interests of the class. Heavy workshop component; students will make copies of their own work and distribute them to the class at least a week in advance of its being discussed.
