Writing and Placing Short Stories in Anthologies, Lit Journals, and Lit Mags

Are you looking to build your writing resume? Short stories are a great way to get your work into the world and build your readership.

In this one day workshop, we’ll examine short story form and story arcs by dissecting a few short works. You’ll be introduced to venues that publicize calls for submissions for short fiction, and we’ll also discuss techniques for crafting stories to fit an Anthology guideline as well as Story Submission Letters.

If you’re looking to get published, or have some short stories you’d like to place, this is the class for you.  And if short fiction is something you’ve never investigated, you might discover a new love in your life.
