Weekly exercises in the craft of narrative art will be supplemented by readings in short fiction and one novel. Two days of the week will generally be set aside for classroom discussion of your work. One day will be reserved for analysis of the reading assignments. I encourage individual conferences. The Arts College common hours on Thursday evenings will introduce you to aspects of other arts.
The books we'll use are: Ernest Hemingway's The Garden of Eden [Simon & Schuster, ISBN 0684804522 (paper)] and Forty Short Stories: A Portable Anthology [Bedford/St. Martin's, ISBN 0-312-25912-3].
