ONLINE: Short Story Fiction Writing
Explore short story fiction writing by studying narrative craft elements like story, plot, character, scene, structure, archetypal patterns and dialogue. We’ll examine professionally published pieces and your own work. By the end of the course, you’ll be ready to begin a story based on a word or an idea. You’ll also understand how to evaluate and revise your work.
- In order to complete this class, you should have reliable online access, and a functioning computer with a camera. There will be homework: readings and writing. Students should have something to write with and on. There is no textbook. I will also be sending Word and PDF files regularly; if you don't have Word we can work through Google Docs.
