Workshop Visual

Story Craft

Learn practical aspects of the storytelling process that will help you shape gripping, fully developed short stories. 

COURSE DESCRIPTION


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.

You'll learn ways to concept, pace and put together plots from scratch, think about description and voice, write believable characters and dialogue that flows, edit and give feedback on manuscripts, analyze short stories, and more.

Our intimate 2-hour classes meet once a week for 8 weeks, offering aspiring writers a supportive environment where they can explore and workshop their writing with weekly feedback from peers and the instructor.

The next Story Craft course starts on 11 April 2019. Fill out the form below to register.
