This short fiction writing course is designed to get participants writing and develop their skills. Writing techniques, literary devices, and tips and tricks will help you discover, perfect, and share your own writer’s voice.
During the course we’ll look at:
- story openings
- using flashback
- creating characters
- writing dialogue
- viewpoint and tense
- tone and mood
- settings and description
- how to end your story
Towards the end, we’ll look at one of the most important parts of the writing process–editing and revising. You’ll get an idea about proofreading, and how to prepare and submit your short fiction to publications.
And if you get struck down with it, we’ll look at how to overcome writer’s block.
