In 6 weeks you’ll write, workshop, and revise a short story. Along the way, explore character, point of view, setting, and voice, in addition to current fiction markets and the dos and don’ts of submissions. By the end, you’ll have a story ready to mail to the publishing giants. (Stamps not included.) Note: No class Wed Feb 2. 7-9pm.
