In this 8-week class, writers will work with New York Times Bestselling editor and debut author Molly McGhee to shape a short story draft into material for publication. We'll discuss what type of writer you are, establishing authority on the page, using intentional language, and honing authorial style, all while discussing multiple strategic approaches to submitting for publication.
