Lorrie Moore, in an interview with The Paris Review, said: "A story is a kind of biopsy of human life [...] both local, specific, small, and deep, in a kind of penetrating, layered, and revealing way." With such a limited word count, what can a short story accomplish that a novel cannot? In this class we'll learn how to write short fiction that hooks a reader from the very first sentence, giving and receiving constructive feedback throughout. By reading a range of published stories and paying close attention to the conventions of craft, we'll learn the rules—and then how to break them!
