“It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.” George Orwell, "1984."

With the help of famous first sentences and other writing prompts participants will develop a complete short story during this six week class.

We will read a story by Ernest Hemingway to analyze its structure.

In a comfortable, supportive environment we will practice plotting, point of view, and creating a story arch including conflict, climax, and resolution.

Through reading critiques we will practice character development, dialogue, the theory of omission, how to “show, not tell,” and how to create tension, suspense and surprise. Participants can use the writing prompts provided, or work on their own stories.

Please note: It is best to register at least a week before the start of a class to help our instructors prepare and ensure that a class does not get cancelled or rescheduled.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
