Short Story Revision Workshop
Genres: Fiction, Short Story
This course will offer a variety of focused techniques designed to isolate and revise different elements of your writing. Each week we will focus on a different craft element such as plot, setting, character, and language. Using the same piece of writing, we will cut, highlight, discuss, and push our writing for all it's worth to explore what elements are worth keeping and what needs more attention. Students will be asked to share and read each other's stories ahead of class.
