Literary Excursions: Critically Acclaimed Contemporary Short Stories

June 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

$100

In each session of this class, we will examine two short stories, focusing on what distinguishes them from other examples of the form—the literary style, message, theme, characters or something else? As a group, we will try to determine what aspects contribute to the story’s critical acclaim. Then, we’ll document our reasons for determining whenever a story is overrated! All stories available through online search.

June 26: Kristen Roupenian’s “Cat Person,” “New Yorker,” 12/11/17 & Curtis Sittenfeld’s “Gender Studies,” “New Yorker,” – 8/29/16

Coleen Grissom served for 58 years at Trinity University as both faculty and administrator and was the university’s first female vice-president. She holds a Ph.D. and had published both a collection of her speeches and her essays. Long a supporter of Gemini Ink, now that she’s retired from full-time work at Trinity, she looks forward to teaching here again.

 

Wednesdays, June 5, 12, 19, 26, 12-1pm. 1111 Navarro St.

$100 for all four classes, or $35 each
