Five Weeks, One Great Short Story
Unlike most other short story courses, this class focuses not just on starting a story, but on finishing it. A series of in-class and at-home exercises help you to locate your story’s jumping off point and to kick off a beginning that grabs the reader’s attention. Further craft exercises help you to sustain your story’s narrative middle. Of course, special attention is paid to crafting an ending that moves and satisfies the reader. Writers need writers, and a positive workshop style turns classmates into writing colleagues. We work together to identify each story’s strengths and potential. This is your chance to dive into the creative process and to learn the craft that will lead to a polished short story. Bring a story, a story idea, or anything in-between to the first class session.
