Creative Writing: Landscapes and the Short Story

The landscape plays an important role in short stories from a variety of authors. The landscape within a story affects many components of fiction such as characterization, tone, and outcomes. This class will help students learn how to write a short story that emphasizes a particular landscape that they value. The students will also read a variety of short stories by well-known authors. They will write, revise, and present their own short stories to others. They will learn the basics of writing fiction while taking several field trips to various locations to immerse themselves in the experience. One evening or weekend will consist of an overnight with the presentations or final readings of the stories at the SES woods in Hayward.
