VIRTUAL EVENT. Registration is required

Short stories provide tiny glimpses into the vivid, significant moments that alter characters and set them on new paths. They are one of the oldest types of literature and are still vital today when they can be easily read in one sitting. In this workshop we’ll discuss what makes a great short story, as well as learn some quick tips to start a successful story, keep it in motion, and how to stick the ending. We’ll also do some writing exercises so come ready to be inspired!
