A short story can knock you flat, it can break your heart, it can make you believe in the world. But how? How can you achieve all that in just a few thousand words? Through workshop and discussion, this class will cover all the key elements that make a great short story: plot, character, structure, tone, voice, pacing, tension, dialogue, believability, and more. Handouts, exercises and readings will be provided. Tips on marketing and selling your stories will also be discussed.
Be prepared to bring 2-3 stories to class to be workshopped. Class size limited to 12 students.
