Old Story, New Story: Short Fiction with Gabriel Bump
Is there an old short story from college buried in your desk drawer? Are you interested in applying to MFA programs, or submitting to your favorite literary journal? Do you love to mess around in private with language, plot, and characters? If any, or all, of the above applies to you, consider bringing your work into this workshop for aspiring short story writers. You’ll receive a valuable opportunity to receive feedback and guidance from an intimate cohort. In this class, open to writers of all abilities, we’ll dissect each other’s work with kind eyes, always looking for how a piece can live up to its full potential. We’ll also read published work to gain inspiration and unravel how great writing works.
