Revising Your Short Story: Polishing your Writing until it Shines
4 Tuesdays
Edmonds Community College

Revising your writing can make the difference between a rejected short story, and one that gets publishers excited. In this class, instructor G.G. Silverman will show you her own techniques for editing short fiction, and making it attractive to publishers. We’ll also learn how to workshop our pieces with critique partners. Students must bring copies of one work in progress (a short story up to 5000 words long) to class for workshopping, and will leave the class with a revised piece of writing.

Description: These days, everyone talks about “strong female characters.” But what does that mean? In this panel discussion, we’ll explore how to move beyond the “warrior looking for love” trope and create genuine, believable, multi-faceted characters who kick butt while displaying their emotional depth.
