with Bill Burtis
This hybrid course alternates with in person and remote meetings.The course will offer a combination of class discussion of the work of well known short-story writers and "workshop" feedback sessions for the work of participants. Each participant will be expected to write one short story per week: fiction, nonfiction, or memoir and to read and be prepared to discuss an assigned short story. Participant's stories will be distributed electronically by email each week to be read ahead of time for critique in the in-person class the following week. Participants should be prepared to read up to 20 pages of work by fellow participants plus the short story assigned for that week. Required: Internet connection, Zoom account, and Microsoft Word, google docs, or alternate application in order to type and share stories. Please pre-register as a minimum of 4 people is required to run the course.
