Deconstructing the Short Story is making a comeback. Why? Because no two classes were alike.
Storytelling isn’t a world of rules. It’s a world of compromise. The stories you produce are born as much through discovery as they are through creation. And most short stories challenge us because so much of what we create and discover during this process has to be left out.
In Deconstructing the Short Story, we’ll spend six weeks considering short storytelling tips, pulling apart short stories and discussing what does and doesn’t work, and, if time permits, workshopping parts of each other’s short stories. This class is for beginner and experienced writers alike. Newcomers and dabblers are encouraged to join.
