8-Week: Intro to Writing the Short Story


This class will introduce you to the short story form, and, more importantly, get you writing. We'll spend the first four weeks concentrating on writing exercises as well as reading published short stories and essays about the writing process. The second four weeks will be devoted to workshopping one another's stories. Everyone will submit one short story. Throughout the session, we will also discuss the different aspects of short stories, like point-of-view, dialogue, pacing, setting, showing/telling, and tone. If you're interested in learning how to write a short story, come join us!

Please Note: This class will skip the week of April 18 and will continue through the week of May 16.
