Short stories can be just about anything, but how do you make yours stand out? This workshop will help aspiring and experienced writers shape and refine their fiction according to their own vision, with emphasis on character, plot, structure and style. We will explore the principles of storytelling through writing exercises, discuss the work submitted, and analyze some of the best examples of the genre.  Please consult the PWW web site for information on manuscript submission guidelines.
