About this Workshop

Story is in everything we do, but what makes a good story, or -more specifically- what makes a good short story? These have their own elements that help drive a reader through the pages, however many they may be.

We’re very excited and honored to welcome Jackie Hutchins as this summer’s Short Story Workshop instructor.

In this workshop, writers will bring complete or in-progress short stories of between 8 to 15 pages (typed, double-spaced). As a group, we will provide feedback and critique focusing on the story’s parameters (what the writing is trying to accomplish), clarity of writing, and character development.

Most weeks we will discuss three pieces. After we discuss a story, the instructor will provide the writer with a written summary of her own thoughts and feedback on the work. The first Thursday will be introductory, to allow participants to get to know each other and to become familiar with the format of the workshop.

This session is designed for writers with small to large body of work and who desire feedback while they submit their stories to publications.
