Short stories offer huge freedom for creative play and experimentation, but they require great discipline and precision to make an emotional impact on the reader. Together we’ll explore the essential skills of great short story writing, including how to come up with original ideas, how to develop arresting core images, plots that grab a reader and don’t let go, creating conflict and characters with depth, editing, and engineering powerful endings. Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, a fantastical absurdist or gritty realist, you’ll soon be writing stories that will linger long in your reader’s mind.
