What you'll learn in this fiction class:

Works of fiction are often identified as either literary or genre, but this class will consider them both/and. Writers will identify what makes fiction "genre" or "literary," and look at contemporary short stories that combine aspects of science fiction with a literary aim. Participants will focus on an example and an aspect of craft each week. By the end of this eight week workshop, participants will have at least one completed story (or chapter) of a hybrid literary/sci-fi work. Note: No meeting on February 19.
