Due Monday Feb 14.
Choose a newspaper article to use as the basis for a 3-6 page short story. Look to the article for elements of character, plot, and language that could be used as structures for you own story. Consider carefully choosing a few details from the article that could be exaggerated or defamiliarized to make the reader see the story in a new way. The exaggeration or defamiliarization may take the form of science fiction or fantasy, but that is not a requirement.
