There are countless stories to tell, and each can be told in countless ways. This workshop course in short fiction explores how the interest, infinite variety, and art of narrative depend on the nature of the transaction between story-teller and audience. Outstanding examples of the form are examined for their essential elements--plot, characterization, point of view, figurative language, and literary style--and students share exercises extending their command of each. Works studied, from fairy tales and modern classics to contemporary experimental fiction, explore the difficulties and uncertainties of story-telling, the reader's participation in the construction of meaning, and the relation of narrated incidents to lived experience. Students in the course will collaborate on the development of an online magazine of short fiction.
