Writing short stories is an art unto itself. You need to develop characters, create a plausible plot, throw in a twist and entertain your reader thoroughly, all in just a few words. This course focuses on micro, flash and short shorts from 100 to 2,000 words. You’ll also learn where to submit your short stories. This is an interactive class with sharing and critique.
