Writing and revising a short story can often seem like an arduous task, like building a bridge all alone. But the work gets easier if you have a good team—a group of people you trust, who give good advice, who have lessons to teach whether they know it or not. So, with that in mind, please join me for a no frills, absolutely practical short story workshop. The goal is simply this: for you to leave the course with ONE completed short story, ready for submission for publication. Some people may have a short story they wish to work on, to revise; others may want to start fresh. Both approaches are welcome. Either way, we’re going to dig deep into the short story form and figure out how it works.
This course will be a mix of studying the craft exhibited in fine examples of published short stories and reading/commenting on the short stories of your peers—about thirty to forty pages of reading each week. (Please ensure you can commit to at least three hours of reading per week between sessions.) In each meeting, we will discuss a published short story and then turn to your work to apply lessons, to ask questions, to be cheerleaders—in short, to be the team that’ll help you build that bridge from wanting to be published to being published.
