The main objective of this workshop will be the production of three stories and three revisions. The stories, by the end of the semester, should be professionally enough presented that they may be unblushingly submitted to a journal for publication.
Because students will have already completed two other college-level
fiction-writing classes, we will take for granted that everyone is

Students interested in this class should submit 15-20 pages of fiction
along with a list of their previous creative writing classes and any
other pertinent biographical information to my mailbox in BH 442 at

approved, contact the Undergraduate Secretary in BH402 for an on-line
