Short Story Generator

Introductory / Intermediate | Know you want to write fiction, but aren’t sure how to start? Written before but are feeling stuck? This generative class will help you find ideas, locate plot, build dramatic tension, and enhance characters. Students can “choose their own adventure,” working on a single story throughout the class or pursuing multiple stories/story ideas. We’ll read, discuss, offer on-the-spot feedback, and we’ll write. A lot. Students can expect extensive, supportive, instructor critique.

Beth Slattery

Beth Slattery moved to Seattle after eighteen years of teaching creative writing and literature at Indiana University East. Since her relocation, she has been writing and editing. Beth is currently working on a collection of personal essays about her mid-life marriage to a Zimbabwean, a move from the Midwest to the Pacific Northwest, and a reluctant acceptance of the call to adventure. Her most recent publications appear in Assay: A Journal of Nonfiction Studies and Southern Women’s Review. Beth’s recent editing work includes being a “beta” reader for an author with a multi-book publishing contract, content and copy editing of a personal essay collection, and providing comprehensive editing services on an edited academic volume that was later published by Oxford University Press.
