We’ve heard the phrase, “that’s a good story,” a thousand times just by sharing an anecdote from our morning commute or repeating a tale our grandmother once shared with us, so what makes writing a good short story so hard? Writer, teacher, and editor Adam Soto will instruct students and workshop stories through a 6-week process towards achieving the goal of writing a damn good short story.
Whether you’re starting with a concept or have a whole collection that needs polishing, this is the short fiction class for you!
This Course Will Give You:
- Ample feedback, editing, and advice from an award-winning graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and assistant editor of American Short Fiction
- Insight into submitting and collecting stories, and using them to build a literary career.
- Tools to use on your own to better your fiction outside of the workshop setting.
- Exposure to classic models of and evolving trends in the short story form.
This Six-Week Short Fiction Workshop is offered through The Writing Barn’s online Zoom programming and will offer students a chance to share their work with other writers from all over the country, building a diversity of perspective as well as a community of hard-working, serious artists.
We will be using Zoom online conference software for remote learning. Instructions for online learning with The Writing Barn are located here.
Full dates of this Wednesday night online class are: 1/10, 1/17, 1/24, 1/31, 2/7, 2/14.
**Terms and conditions: Please note that all Writing Barn classes and events are nonrefundable and nontransferable to another class. You may transfer your attendance to another writer.**
