Short stories require a particular skill set, and they demand the utmost attention. Where do you begin? How do you know what to put in and what to leave out? How do you create a short story that leaves the reader desperate to read more of your work?
In this six week course we’ll work through the particulars of short story construction, including character development, plot construction, and story arcs. Throughout, you’ll develop a piece of writing for your portfolio.
Suitable for writers at all levels.
