TECHNIQUES OF MODERN SHORT STORIES
Janice Moore, 3 Sessions, Wednesday, January 30 – February 13, 1:10 pm – 3:10 pm
What do we talk about when we talk about fiction? We will read a selection of modern short stories that present the ever popular subject of relationships between the sexes. You will be intrigued by such writers as Bobbie Ann Mason (southern, of course!), T. Coraghessan Boyle (with a name like that, he has to be good!), Raymond Carver and others. You will encounter techniques such as minimalism and of course, symbolism. This class will be of interest for those who write fiction or just enjoy reading.
