Creative Writing II: Fiction Topics: Linked Stories
All story collections are linked by their authors' sensibilities, but this topic-specific fiction workshop will focus on the purposefully linked story collection sometimes also called the novel-in-stories or the story cycle. We will read many examples of the form including collections which use multiple point of view characters to write about a community. For a final project every student writer will contribute a story to a linked class collection based in an imagined community that together the class will have created and mapped.
