Contemporary Short Fiction Class

Contemporary Short Fiction is an eight-week class that mirrors the experience of the Waring Humanities program. Classes begin with an open-ended question to ignite discussion, after which we travel unexpected, serious, enlightening, pleasurable, and frequently humorous paths. In the process, we discover truths we were unlikely to have discovered alone. The text for our class, now in its fifth session, will be The O. Henry Prize Stories 2018. Participants will receive the exact syllabus when it is ready.
