In this workshop we’ll focus on the creation of short stories and short personal essays. We’ll study contemporary examples of short fiction and nonfiction, and we’ll work with writing prompts in order to generate original prose pieces. The goal will be to create a welcoming space in which students feel eager to share their work. This will be a place for experimentation and practice.
