The Center for LIterature and Theatre @MDC presents Structuring Fiction and Nonfiction with David Beaty

February 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

| $170

You are in the middle of your story, or you’re finished and revising, but are having trouble putting it into a satisfying shape. How, you wonder, have other writers designed their stories? We’ll read and discuss short stories by masters such as Hemingway, Babel, Chekhov, Cheever, and Trevor, paying close attention to their stories’ beginnings, middles, and ends, their style and themes. What makes a good beginning? How can we develop a story? How can we bring our stories to an effective end? There will be short writing exercises in class; most importantly, students will be expected to bring in their own stories or nonfiction pieces to be read and discussed by the class.
