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.
