Writing the Long Short Story

September 25 – October 30, 2021
Saturdays, 12:00 – 2:00 p.m. Pacific time (six sessions)
online via Zoom


This class is ideal for writers looking to work on a long short story of 35 pages or more. The long short story is an interesting form, giving writers the elbow room to delineate their stories more deeply yet still staying devoted to the principles of the short story. For some writers, the long short story can be an excellent precursor to the novel. In this six-week intensive workshop, participants will read and analyze the work of storytellers and master writers working with the long short story while simultaneously working on their own long story. Participants are welcome to bring an existing story/work and develop it further during the session.
