Writing Short Stories (February)

Learn the basic structure of all stories by studying 5-part story structure, which you’ll use as a template to develop your own story during this four-week class. I’ll lead you step-by-step through the process as you develop and refine your work. My classes provide a safe and supportive environment to share your work and receive feedback from fellow students. We’ll read and discuss some terrific short stories to inspire you. Open to all levels of writers. Class size limited to 8.
