The Devil Is in the Details: Writing & Revising Short Fiction

This short fiction workshop will focus on learning to step inside your scenes as the character, discover what is happening inside the moments of your story, and then step back, as the writer, to figure out what needs to be kept and what needs to be cut. We will spend our time writing based on reading and prompts, and discussing some techniques for revision toward the end.
