This workshop is designed to help you investigate what lies behind the scenes in a short story and then apply that knowledge to your own writing to create entertaining, compelling, and profound stories of your own—whatever your preferred genre and your background in writing may be. With texts by celebrated authors as different as Anton Chekhov, Flannery O’Connor, Atsushi Nakajima, and Lesley Nneka Arimah, we’ll delve into the principles of structure, characterization, plotting, voice, description, and more.
By the end of the course, you’ll have written and received supportive class feedback on several writing exercises and one full-length short story.
