Short Story Workshop

Stories want readers. This class is designed for the writer who has a completed draft of a short story and is ready for useful feedback. All participants will be expected not only to submit a story but also to read and respond to the work of their fellow classmates, an exercise that invariably sharpens one’s instincts as a writer. The four-week workshop will be facilitated in the spirit of encouragement, rigor, community, and conversation. Limit 12 students.
