In Short: The Art & Craft of Fiction – Winter 2022

Writer George Saunders says, “When you read a short story, you come out of it a little more aware and a little more in love with the world around you.” This short story workshop will nurture the artistic impulses of writers who want to craft rich and meaningful short stories. You will write, revise, and workshop stories-in-progress while studying contemporary short stories and craft essays on form and craft elements like character, setting, conflict, plot, and theme. For all levels.

Gavin Colton’s recent short stories have appeared in The Wax Paper, Loch Norse Magazine, and La Picolette Barca. He is the most recent recipient of the William Hugh Jansen Award for distinguished writing based on oral traditions, the art of story-telling, or folklore elements.
