Abstract:
This thesis consists of a selection of short stories and flash fiction written between January 2015 and March 2016. The stories, told primarily by young women, examine familial, platonic, and romantic relationships. They are filled with characters doing their best to navigate the world around them, sometimes fumbling, sometimes standing still, but always learning.
