Have you ever wanted to figure out exactly why you love a story? Want to get to the nitty-gritty, down and dirty mechanics of an author’s writing? Want to discuss a story with other writers so you can figure out how to use those techniques in your own writing? In this one-day examination of short fiction, Ph.D. candidate and prize-winning author Patrick Stockwell will lead a deep dive into “Runaway,” a modern masterpiece by Nobel Prize–winning author Alice Munro.

Students will receive a PDF copy of the short story via Eventbrite email and will need to read it closely before class so we can get right to our analysis.
