We all tell stories, but when we sit down to write one, often the words don't flow. Usually this isn't a question of talent or inspiration, but simply of knowing how to proceed. Story Craft focuses on the practical aspects of the storytelling process that will help you shape gripping, fully developed short stories. Our intimate, 2-hour classes meet once a week for 10 weeks, offering writers a supportive environment where they can explore and workshop their writing with weekly feedback from peers and the instructor.

Story Craft has not only changed the way I write, but also the way I read and analyze books. This is a lesson which will stay with me forever, I think.

I’ve always enjoyed writing and felt this was a way of taking it to the next level. Max’s teaching style and expertise were inspiring and helped focus my ideas. I wish it didn't have to end.

Everyone is creative. But sometimes you just need a little push. And that’s what this course is about. Story Craft is a “sacred space” that enables people to dive into the world of literary creation.
