GENRE: Fiction & Short Story
Stories can be told in many ways, in many voices. They can span a night, a day, or many years. They can be close to life, take flight into fantasy, or be radically experimental. But they must be self-contained – they can contain or reflect other stories, but they are not chapters of a novel. A short story must stand alone. Many of the best stories are only a few pages long; they can flit from character to character and voice to voice, but your narrator – omniscient or otherwise – must retain control of the proceedings. We will present a variety of techniques and strategies to enrich those who love writing and reading short fiction.
