Write a publishable story for the current literary market!
What makes a story fresh? Contemporary? Stand out? Publishable? In this small-sized class, we’ll examine a series of contemporary stories to answer these questions and discover lessons on craft, style, and theme to apply to our own writing. In preparation, you’ll need a full-length story or novel chapter (up to 20 pages) completed or near-completed and an open mind ready to take on suggestions for revision. The class will also include some writing prompts and guidance on where to submit revised stories.
