ONLINE: Generative Short Story Workshop on Your Lunch Hour!
Write a short story in five days! Join me for a lunchtime class organized around generative writing prompts meant to assist you in pushing through the uncertainty of that rough first draft. We’ll meet each day from 12-1 p.m., go over a helpful craft prompt, and write together. As the week progresses, we’ll assess our work and take stock of next steps.
- You will work toward the goal of completing the first draft of a short story in one week.
- Classes are confirmed one week prior to the start date. In order to help us confirm classes, please register as early as possible.
- This class is held online through Zoom; learn more about how online classes work here
