Instructor, Tina Tocco
April 6, 13, 20, 27, May 4, 11
10:00 to noon

Via Zoom

You have a short story you’re trying to finish, but it’s not quite there yet.  It needs some editing, some polishing, some suggestions from fellow writers with similar goals. Bring that work-in-progress and your concerns to this six-week class.  You’ll have the opportunity to workshop your piece multiple times so you can receive feedback, discuss your story, and make revisions. We’ll focus on craft issues such as point of view, dialogue, setting, character development, and effective use of language to help you improve that not-quite-there-yet short story. All fiction genres, including flash fiction and children's/YA fiction, welcome!

The fee for this 6-week class is $240. Class size is limited to 8 students.

Students must register by Tuesday, April 5 to receive the Zoom link.
