Writing Workshop: Short Stories from Writing to Publication

Ever have an idea for a story that strikes out of nowhere? But what then? How does one take an idea and turn it into a story? And after a story is written, how can we revise it to make it the best it can be? And how does one submit a story and get it published?

We will address the essential elements of fiction that make stories succeed: inspiration, prewriting, developing character, plot, vivid description. Instructor Shaun Turner will point out the usual mistakes that cause a story to fall flat. He will also show participants the best resources for finding suitable publishers to get their world out into the world!

This workshop is designed for writers of all levels and backgrounds. The first workshop will deal with pre-writing strategies, the second with essentials of short fiction (and revision), and the third will be designated to submitting and publication success.

 

Dates: August 11, 18, & 25, and September 1
