The class will be conducted as a seminar. Every student will write three stories during the semester; each story will be discussed by the group. The instructor will, from time to time, suggest works of fiction that he hopes will be illustrative and inspirational but there will be no required books. Attendance and participation are essential. Students who have completed and taken pleasure in a fiction writing course need not submit writing samples. Others please submit brief samples to:firstname.lastname@example.org. Permit from the instructor is required.
