Oates, J. C., ed.: The Oxford Book of American Short Stories 2012


A fiction workshop in which students will be expected to turn in material approximately every third week, to be edited and discussed in class.

Emphasis will be upon editing and revising. Quality rather than quantity is the ideal, but each student should be prepared to write about fifty pages through the term, to be gathered into a small “book” and turned in on the last class day. Appropriate assignments will be made in the new, 2012 edition of THE OXFORD BOOK OF AMERICAN SHORT STORIES edited by Joyce Carol Oates.

To be considered for admission to this class, please submit 10-15 photocopied pages of your fiction, along with an application form, to Prof. Joyce Carol Oates' mailbox in 322 Wheeler, BY 4:00 P.M., TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, AT THE LATEST.

Be sure to read the paragraph concenring creative writing courses on page 1 of this Announcement of Classes for further information regarding enrollment in such courses!
