1G: Object Lessons: An Exploration FULL
Limited Capacity full

This class will explore the role of objects in fiction. The objects that appear in our stories and novels have the potential to open powerful news doors in our pages—to alter and deepen the path of a moment, a scene, even an entire narrative. Together we will look at the ways objects can help us forward plot; complicate character; generate structure; and navigate time (and more!). Texts will include Achy Obejas’s “Kimberle” and Yiyun Li’s “Sweeping Past," among others.
