If you love reading short stories and want to write them, this class is for you. We'll examine jaw-dropping short stories and what makes them tick. We'll try writing our own short fiction, learning idea generation techniques, experimental story formats, and revision tips to make your stories gleam. Then we'll learn how to get published.
Students will leave this class with at least 3 new short story ideas, a cover letter for submitting stories to publishers, and a critique of a story up to 5000 words from the instructor, author G.G. Silverman.
SUPPLIES: Bring either a notebook and a pen OR a laptop/tablet with writing software
Supplies: Laptop, or pen and paper
Whether you write in space or with magic, or some combination of both, this is the class for you! Equal parts idea generation and workshopping, we'll dig into what makes speculative fiction come to life on the page.
Everyone has interesting stories, perspectives, and experiences that would be great for creative essays. This class will provide tools, techniques, styles, and formats to help you craft your own nonfiction pieces and edit them into publishable shape. You will leave the course with at least two starter essays and a critique of writing up to 4000 words from author Caleb Tankersley.
