Short stories can be just about anything, but how do you make yours stand out? This course helps aspiring and experienced writers shape and refine their fiction according to their own unique vision, with emphasis on character and form.
Over six sessions, we will explore the principles of story writing in class exercises, discuss participants' work, and analyze some of the masters of the genre.
The class is open to writers of all levels. Advanced guidance will be available for experienced writers.
Instructor: Alecia McKenzie is an award-winning short-story writer and novelist.
