We’ll go through the process of drafting and revising a short story with hands on exercises to help you practice elements of craft like piquing reader interest, specificity, setting, character, and plot. This class will teach you how to come up with ideas then execute your vision in revision.
Revision is 90% of the process. The stakes are nothing. This is a learning opportunity. We will have fun and play around with stories to expand our creativity while practicing concrete craft skills. Examples stories will be assigned each week that illustrate the element of craft we’ll focus on during class.
Writers of sci-fi, fantasy, horror, or anything genre defying are welcome, as are writers of literary or other fiction looking to expand their craft.
Open to all levels. $5 photocopy fee.
