Six Month Short Story Intensive – Virtual
January 11 @ 12:00 pm - June 7 @ 2:00 pm$1100
In January, I will teach the six month workshop focused on short fiction collections for the third year in a row.
This class is oriented to writers who are looking to get serious about their short fiction collection, and to move a larger-scale project out of their brain and into the world.
More detailed information about the six-month online intensive class at Literary Arts can be found here.

January 11, 2023 – June 7, 2023
Class limited to 10 students
From the Literary Arts site:
This class is for experienced writers who are dedicated to starting the first draft of a story collection over the course of 6 months. We will have 22 class meetings between October and April, with a four-week break in December to focus on generating and revising our work.
Participants should have experience writing stories and familiarity with the elements of literary short fiction including scene, character, conflict, place and revision. We will study individual stories by authors, read craft essays, and discuss several published collections and how the stories unite to form a book.
This class is specifically designed for writers who are comfortable in a workshop setting. We will be giving and receiving feedback on works in progress at each of our meetings. Students will be expected to workshop their stories four times throughout the intensive.
In addition to the specific goal of starting a collection, the intention of this class is to bring together a group of writers who are actively seeking accountability, community, and a deepening of dedication to their own work.
