March 4th Meeting How to Write Winning Short Stories

Saturday, March 4, 2017, 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Workshop with Nancy Day Sakaduski

Short stories are hot again, and provide a great way to get published and build writing credentials. In this workshop you’ll learn how short stories differ from novels and get help with structure, setting, characters, dialogue, beginnings, endings, and more. Find out where you can market short stories and how to identify contests worth entering.

Bring a pen and paper, as you’ll be taking your new knowledge out for a spin with some short exercises. This workshop is jam-packed with practical, actionable information that will improve your writing, no matter what kind of writing you’re doing.

  1. Is it possible to get a copy of the most recent newsletter? My daughter, Emma Millar, is a poetry winner and is featured in that issue, and will be featured in the upcoming issue as well. I would be happy to pay for several copies — I just need help finding out how to get them!

    Many thanks in advance, Patty Millar
