Craft and Technique of Fiction (1): The Short Story: Theory and Practice / EN6058 (10 credits)

[Autumn Semester 2017 – Visiting Frank O’Connor Fellow, Marie-Helene Bertino]

This class, which is part seminar/part workshop, examines the short story form in detail. Students read and analyse short story texts and apply what they’ve learnt in a series of craft writing exercises and in original fiction pieces that form part of the final portfolio for the course.
