with Jessica Noyes McEntee

 

Open to all levels of fiction writers and poets; let's steal some "best practices" from both camps. We'll dissect a range of published pieces, including poems, flash fiction, short stories, and excerpts from novels, mulling over "what's working" in terms of craft and execution. We'll extrapolate a sense of animating desire from a Billy Collins poem, for instance, and use this insight to generate a character study. Students will have a chance to read their studies aloud.  

 

During every other class, we'll designate time for students to present up to 3 double-spaced pages of more polished work for feedback. The artists we'll cover in class include Jenny Xie, Sally Rooney, Stephen Dunn, Jenny Offill. Oh, and we'll have fun!
