Short Story Intensive TWO

Thursdays, March 12-April 16, 2020
from 6:00–9:00 p.m. (six sessions)
925 SW Washington Street Portland, OR 97205
Instructor: Margaret Malone

The focus of this class will be revision and reworking of in-process stories. We will work together as a group to hone and refine existing craft techniques and to suggest possibilities for strengthening each piece. In this weekly critique workshop, we will read and share our in-progress work, provide written and oral feedback to peers, and discuss assigned weekly readings together.

Prerequisites: For students who have taken Short Story Intensive, Short Story Crash Course or Launching Stories at Literary Arts or receive instructor permission.
