    The line of beauty is the line of economy,” Emerson wrote, a rallying cry for the art of brevity. In this course, we’ll use his words as a mantra as we explore the virtue of compression, concision and velocity. Through reading and writing mini-essays, flash fiction, prose poems (and everything in-between), we’ll study the key principles of literary composition and work to discover the many strategies available to the writer working under the constraint of the short-short. Instructor: Juliet Patterson
