Do you have a great idea for a short story? Have you kept a writing journal full of ideas and scenes and are now ready to take the next step by writing a first draft? This is the class for you! Each week we will review and practice one or more craft elements essential to creating compelling fiction, including the five parts of traditional short story form, summary and scene, point of view, characterization, significant detail and imagery, and figurative language and theme. We will also review master works to learn what they can teach us about writing and revising our own stories. Finally, we will practice descriptive brief peer reviews of our works-in-progress (describing the characters, conflict/​change, and what is at stake).
