The author Anaïs Nin wrote,“The artist is the only one who knows that the world is a subjective creation, that there is a choice to be made, a selection of elements.” As a beginning writer of short fiction, how do you bring your “subjective creation” to the page? In this introductory fiction writing seminar, we’ll write, revise, and critique each other’s short stories, and discuss the “choices” and “elements” professional writers bring to their work. Class discussion and writing practice will explore fiction writing techniques. We’ll also read short stories by a variety of contemporary authors such as ZZ Packer, William Gay, Junot Diaz, and Alice Munro.

LSA and Business School freshmen and sophomores must seek permission of instructor to enroll.
