Summer 2016 - this course has now passed.
How can you make your short story shine to editors, competition judges and publishers? You do it by being mindful of every element: presentation, spelling, title, beginnings, language, story, character, POV, dialogue and endings. This course will examine how to get your story working from beginning to end. There will be in-class reading and exercises as well as appraisals of others’ works-in-progress.
