How to Craft A Short Story

Loading Events

What does it take to make a successful short story, and how do you write one? Using other writers as role models, participants will examine together the specific craft elements that contribute to making a story great, as they work on their own piece for a final workshop discussion. Participants will receive reading assignments via email before the class begins.
