Creative Writing: Short Story

May 12 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Creative Writing: Short Story

When does a plot work better as a short story than as a novella or novel? What is the craft of writing short stories? How does a plot differ from a sequence of events? How does writing “in scene” differ from writing exposition? What do writers really mean when they use phrases such as “write what you know” and “show, don’t tell?” This is a creative writing workshop in the craft of writing short fiction, open to writers of all levels. Students will become familiar with the short story through critical reading of writers from the past century and understanding the elements of composition—mechanics, syntax, narrative voice and structure. Exercises on generating story ideas will be given in class as well as tips on how to avoid writer’s block. After gaining knowledge of the short story, each student will draft and revise at least one new short story (10 to 20 pages) that will be constructively discussed in class. Students will submit weekly constructive critiques of their peers’ work and are expected to come to class prepared to discuss one another’s work in detail. All experience levels are welcome. Instructor: Kerry Garvin

Students are responsible for their own materials such as a tablet or laptop if needed. Students are also encouraged to bring their own journal and writing utensil.
