The Art of Writing Short Fiction

Writ­ing short sto­ry is an art, requir­ing the pre­ci­sion and inten­si­ty of poet­ry com­bined with nov­el ele­ments such as struc­ture, set­ting, and char­ac­ter­i­za­tion. We’ll look at our own work and the work of oth­ers in a work­shop set­ting. You will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to pol­ish your style and form, edit and shape your writ­ing, dis­cov­er new ideas for sto­ry devel­op­ment, and gain con­fi­dence in your own style and process.
