Short Story Intensive: Developing Your Craft
Wanting to write short stories, but unsure on how to start? Already creating stories, but experiencing difficulties with coming up with viable and interesting content and structure?
This hands-on workshop could be your answer. Over four weeks, you will:
• review what constitutes various elements of fiction (e.g. character, conflict, plot, setting, dialogue, pace, voice);
• examine some short stories by established writers to understand their approaches/styles;
• brainstorm and develop the first draft of a new short story (max. 3000 words long) from scratch using various prompts and exercises; and
• receive feedback from both participants and the facilitator on how to improve this short story.
