This unit studies contemporary short stories from Australia and around the world to examine how ‘revision’—of stories, characters, voices, genres, and forms—underlies creative ‘vision’. With an emphasis on formal innovation and the digital publishing environment, revisionism is explored as a central methodology of creative practice. Texts studied include Tom Cho’s Look Who’s Morphing, Ceridwen Dovey’s Only the Animals, The Collected Stories of Lydia Davis, Ryan O’Neill’s The Weight of a Human Heart, Jennifer Egan’s A Visit from the Goon Squad, and Penguin’s We Tell Stories. Students will write diverse assessment pieces designed for an online portfolio.
