Short Story Writing

Though limited in form, the short story is a natural passageway into fiction writing, and its effect on the reader can be extremely powerful. Learn not only the fundamentals of short story writing—characterization, plot, dialogue, imagery, and tone—but also strategies for achieving powerful results that, in Flannery O’Connor’s words, keep “the short story from being short.” Receive guidance with brief writing assignments that are supplemented with works by contemporary short story authors. Finish the course having completed at least one short story.
