Short-Short Stories & Vignettes

All Levels. This four-week workshop will guide students through the stages of drafting original short-short stories and vignettes, from the opening stance of the narrator to the final reveal. Students can expect to come away with a wealth of new short material and to apply techniques—such as fairness, repetition, ins, outs, and “pushing”—used by short-story writers Amy Hempel, Sam Lipsyte, and Richard Ford.

This class is conducted online through WetInk. It can be taken at your own pace between the start and end dates. More information on accessing the class will be provided upon registration.

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.
