I teach a short story class through Writers.com and the next session begins in a little over a week, on May 7. In the past, students have found this course extremely beneficial. Not only does the class cover the fundamentals of fiction writing over the course of 10 weeks, but also every student has the opportunity to workshop a 20 page story with the class, PLUS share revisions of that story based on the feedback in the class. The combination of lectures and workshop is a great deal!
Topics covered in the class include beginnings (finding traction), character, plot, setting, dialogue, theme, time, symbolism, and endings. For the complete course description, go here.
Please consider signing up for the class or passing the information along to a friend.
