Spring 2020 Online: Short Story Crash Course

Monday, May 4 - Sunday, May 31st
online via Wet Ink

A four week online fiction class. Draft a short story in four weeks.  Each week’s session in this asynchronous online class combines generative writing to help cultivate ideas for plot and character with workshop feedback to assist in developing story arc, structure, and sensory details.  By the end of the month, you will have completed the first draft of a short story and created a plan for revision.

This class will take place online, using Wet Ink, a popular online platform for classes. Registered students will receive a link to access the class four days before it starts.

Please note: Wet Ink is different from Zoom for online classes in that there is not a “live” option. Students do not “attend” class at a set time, but rather, access lectures, readings and other materials and respond through email and discussion boards. Contact Susan Moore at susan@literary-arts.org if you have questions.

SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE: Scholarships pay for the entire class tuition. All of our writing classes have at least one scholarship position available, made possible by a generous gift from Dennis Steinman. To apply, email Susan Moore, Director of Programs for Writers, at susan@literary-arts.org with your name, contact information, and list 1-3 classes in order of preference. Please note that preference is not guaranteed. All scholarships are subject to availability.
