Creative Writing: Intermediate Fiction ENGLSH 2510 01 Semester Spring Year 2023 AnnElise Hatjakes Tuesday Thursday 9:30-10:45 Arts & Sciences 103A Course Description For sale: baby shoes. Never worn.” Ernest Hemingway is said to have written this six-word story on a bet. We don’t know if the story really won him a $10 wager or even if he was the one who wrote it. What we do know from this particular arrangement of six words is that emotionally expansive fictional worlds can come in unexpectedly small packages. In this course, we will read stories by flash fiction trailblazers like Kathy Fish and Sherrie Flick. Students will also write flash pieces of their own and will leave the class with a portfolio of submission-ready work.
