Short Story Crash Course

April 5 - May 10, 2021
Mondays, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. (six sessions)


Draft a short story in six weeks. Classes combine generative writing to help cultivate ideas for plot and character with workshop feedback to assist in developing story arc, structure, and sensory details. You will also read short stories by masters of the form to help you envision a range of creative possibilities. By the end of the class, you will have completed a draft of a short story, created a plan for revision, and developed material for future projects.

Access Program

We want our writing classes to be accessible to everyone, regardless of income and background. We understand that our tuition structure can present obstacles for some people. Our Access Program offers writing class registrations at a reduced rate. The access program for writing classes covers 60% of the class tuition. Most writing classses have at least one access spot available. Contact Susan Moore at susan@literary-arts.org if you would like to take a writing class at the Access Rate.
