Reading Fiction Online

To excel at writing fiction, you must write regularly and also read stories from a writer’s perspective. Painters typically learn their craft by studying the work of masters, and most accomplished writers do the same. Who better to show you the ropes of great fiction than the best in the business?
Each week, students focus on an aspect of fiction craft in relation to a specific story. Like works of fine art, these stories are analyzed from various angles as their secrets are revealed. (The reading consists of five short stories, which are provided, and a current novel, which students must obtain on their own.)
If you seek to elevate your fiction writing, let those who have been there show the way.
