Reading Closely to Write, Part B
Thursdays, March 4 through March 25
6:30 to 7:30 p.m. CT
This new section of Reading Closely to Write will take up another eight short stories (each averaging only about 10 pages) by celebrated authors. We will continue our examination of two stories each week, looking closely at the sentence structure, stylistic design, and vocabulary of significant passages. Writers make choices when they compose their work, and if we as their readers can recognize those literary decisions, we gain a closer insight into the meaning the authors intended, consciously or unconsciously.
This second part of Reading Closely stands independent of the first; you need not have taken the first section to enjoy this continuation of the course. New selections will again be taken from 100 Great Short Stories, edited by James Daley (Dover, 2015), readily available at Amazon and elsewhere. Please use this registration link to enroll. Tuition for this four-session online short course is $100; you will receive a Zoom link and reading schedule to confirm your registration. We begin Thursday, March 4, at 6:30 p.m. CT. I hope you can join us.
