My next workshop, Nuts and Bolts of Submitting, starts tomorrow! There’s still room, so please sign up here. If you want to join but won’t be able to start for a few days, that’s okay, too. Sign up, let me know, and you’ll be able to do the reading/assignments without falling behind if we work together.
By the request of previous students, the workshop after will be Plotting the Short Story. Starting Monday, October 28, it’ll cover how to fit a whole story into different lengths: flash (1000 and under), mid-length short story (about 4000 words), and longer short stories (up to 6500 words). What do you put in and what do you leave off the page? Fundamentals of storytelling, prepping (including outlining, character arcs, and plot twists) and editing (including how to recognize the different moments of your story so you can move them around) are also covered. Like my other workshops, it’s only $50 for 4 weeks. Sign up here! Space will be limited, and I expect it to fill up quickly.
I’ve created a page, here, to keep track of my classes: what I’ve offered, what I’m doing now, and what’s coming up. Bookmark it if you think you’ll want to take a future class, and I’ll keep the page updated with class descriptions and links.
All workshop students get (and keep) access to our private online forum, with market listings, space to post work-in-progress for critiques, and open discussion topics.
