The course aims to broaden students' understanding and appreciation of the range of writing in short forms and of the contexts of short story production. The short story is particularly appropriate for encouraging comparative analysis between literary cultures and phases of literary development. Students will be expected to apply their understanding of short story forms, contexts and techniques through a series of creative exercises and the production of a short story for assessment.
