8-Week: Intermediate Short Story Workshop

$325.00 Members
$355.00 Non-members

Building on the foundations of Intro to Writing the Short Story, this class will consist primarily of workshopping short story drafts. Each participant will have two opportunities to submit his or her work for peer review. In addition, we’ll use writing exercises and published short stories as launching points for generating new material and discussing aspects of the short story craft, such as scope, narrator reliability, structure, tension, and plot. Writers are encouraged to repeat this class as often as needed to provide structure for consistent output.

Prerequisite: Intro to Writing the Short Story or instructor’s permission. Students need to have workshop experience and a basic understanding of the different POVs, charting a story with Freytag’s pyramid, dialogue (summarized and direct), and balancing showing with telling. To gain permission, please send a brief writing sample (three to five pages) to [email protected].
