Abstract: This work explores the creation of fiction. Set in 1963, a time of the idealization of family, my fifty-three page novella What Your Country Can Do for You uses fiction to question the stability and coherence of family as a word and a concept of American culture. Alan, a bachelor removed from the city in rural New Yark, creates a pressure that opposes culture by locating passions in Eleanor that she's not allowed. In the end, however, the questions and conflict their affair provides are exposed as self-inflicted and crumble in contrast to the kind of hard, external conflict Analee's death represents. The other component of this work is a creative non-fiction account of my pioneering experience in teaching Fiction Writing to high school students at Pine View School for the Gifted in Osprey, Florida during the 2006 spring semester. Rather than simply describing the lesson and exercise strategies attempted in this experience, the account relates also the emotional impact of being a student and a young writer entering a classroom to be expected to play the role of teacher.
