Revising and Submitting the Short Story

Intermediate/Advanced | We will explore how to take a short story manuscript and make it publication-ready. In addition to workshop, the course will address a range of questions that typically arise during revision. Where does the story start? What is the story about and how does the story serve or distract from this meaning? We’ll work on crafting scenes, shaping characters, building tension, creating setting, sharpening dialogue, and editing prose. We will also reserve time to discuss the ins and outs of publication, including how (and when) to find journals, submit work, and enter contests.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
