4-Week: Online Writing the Short Story for Grades 9-12

Online Writing Workshop High School

Because of the condensed space of a short story, each component is crucial. In this online workshop, we’ll first break down the fundamentals of the form—character, plot, and imagery, to name a few—and then we’ll put them back together to create a blueprint for a first-rate short story. You’ll leave the online workshop not only with a strong foundation in the basics of the genre, but also with a completed draft of your own story.

*Please Note: This class will start the week of September 11 (not August 21 as stated in the workshop catalog).

About Online Classes with Lighthouse

Our online classes are designed to be flexible. There's no set meeting date or time, so students can log in to participate whenever and wherever is convenient. Generally the instructor will post new material—such as readings, discussion questions, and writing prompts—on Mondays and students can post their responses to ongoing discussion feeds throughout the week.

On the Monday that class starts, we'll send instructions on how to log into your specific online class.
