Short Stories: The Long and the SHORT of It

Bi-weekly;  Week One;  Monday;  12:15 p.m. – 2:15 p.m.
Two Terms; Online via Zoom 

“A short story is a love affair; a novel is a marriage”. Short stories are one of the oldest types of literature and are a growing and important aspect of contemporary literature. We will learn about significant and influential contemporary short story writers, read and discuss short stories, compare them to one another, discuss how they are written, and how they reflect today’s society.

Each participant will present a short story from a selected book of short stories (“The Best Short Stories, The O.Henry Prize Winners, 2023” and Canadian short stories, to be determined). Everyone is expected to read the story being presented so we can engage in a lively and thoughtful discussion.
