This workshop will focus on the craft aspects of fiction. Students will be asked to turn in drafts of short form fiction (either short stories or novel excerpts), which we will work on together over the length of the course. We will also read and discuss the short fiction of established authors through the lens of a practicing writer, engaging with the questions and challenges of what it means to be a writer today.

Bill Cheng is the author of the novel Southern Cross the Dog which was long-listed for the Center for Fiction’s 2013 Flaherty-Dunnan’s First Novel Prize and the 2014 PEN Open Book Award. He received his BA in creative writing from Baruch College and is a graduate of Hunter College’s MFA program. Born and raised in Queens, he currently lives in Brooklyn with his wife.
