Taught by Margaret Malone

In this class, students will write a draft of a short story in three weeks, with an emphasis on character, voice and how to mine detail inside a scene. Class time will be spent on generating ideas for plot and character; participants will have the opportunity to get feedback on some of their writing and learn techniques for establishing a consistent writing practice so they can revise their draft once the class is done.

Her stories and essays can be found in The Missouri Review, Oregon Humanities, Swink, Propeller Quarterly and elsewhere.She lives in Portland, Oregon where she is a co-host of the artist and literary gathering SHARE.
