Flannery O’Connor wrote, “We in the South live in a society that is rich in contradiction, rich in irony, rich in contrast, and particularly rich in its speech.” In this course, students will read short stories by Southern authors and write fiction set in the American South, focusing on setting, character development, plot, and dialogue.
