All Levels. An intensive six-week course for beginning writers as well as those already involved in writing. We will spend one class on writing basics, three classes on the short story, and two classes on flash fiction. Classes will touch on writing fundamentals as well as discuss the differences between short stories and longer fiction; essentials and non-essentials; crafting an interesting story line; editing and paring down; and saying more with less. We will briefly look at the works of O. Henry, Alice Walker, Ernest Hemingway, and others, plus write a short story and a flash fiction piece.
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.
