In fall of 2023, I am teaching an intermediate fiction workshop in Literary Arts at Brown. (If you are reading this, chances are you already know this.)
The theme of this workshop is "Autofictions."
This page, which is a part of my website, is here to explain what you should submit as a writing sample if you would like to take the class, as well as how to submit this sample.
WHAT TO SUBMIT: Compose a short prose piece of no more than 300 words about a person who has the same name as you, but, importantly, is not you. (Internet searches for your own name sometimes prove fruitful as sources of inspiration, but/and you may complete the assignment as you please.)
HOW TO SUBMIT: Email this short piece to firstname.lastname@example.org as a .doc/.docx and please use the subject line, LITR 210A, Fiction II, Writing Sample
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me at the email address above, as well. Your sample is due on Wednesday, September 6th.
I look forward to reading your work.
