In this class, we will examine the rich, international history of the short short story that we'll use as model and inspiration for our own work. As Jayne Anne Phillips notes, "The realized one-page fiction must move palpably beyond the page, like a ghost self." Writers will explore the way a condensed form can, in fact, expand and deepen narrative resonance. Constraint-based exercises will drive the generation of several pieces of fiction in miniature. Students will leave class with a bank of strategies for creating quick, compelling fiction.
