Course Description:
Get your creative story juices flowing!
This course is for anyone who wants to sharpen her short story writing skills with a view to publication. Though the focus is on short stories, the skill-based classes apply to novel writing.  There will be an in-class writing assignment each week + instructor feedback.
  • What is a short story? Short stories must have five elements: character, plot, conflict, location and theme.
  • Literary Devices: Crucial tools in our writer’s toolkit. We will learn how to control our pace and deepen our theme with two invaluable devices. 
  • The most important thing: Why are you telling us this story? Who cares? Story vs. craft and why story always wins.
  • The importance of Revision and the path to Publishing.
