Summer Short Fiction Workshop

I’m so thrilled to be teaching a phenomenal short story workshop for WCU again this summer!  I have ten really awesome students in the class, and they are bright, engaging, diverse, funny and driven.  Together, we’ll be working with five collections of excellent contemporary short stories: Peter Grandbois’ Domestic Disturbances, […]

[…] Nina McConigley’s Cowboys and East Indians, Jensen Beach’s From out of the Heart Proceed, Nathan Oates’ The Empty House, and Sara Veglahn’s Mayflies.  These collections are gorgeous first books, and the authors have generously agreed to work with the students (who will collaborate as pairs) through email, Skype, and chat.

We’re three weeks in, and I couldn’t be happier — I am a very happy and fortunate teacher, always.
