Our creative writing workshop will focus on writing a modern short story, with an emphasis on narrative structure, engaging plot, and realistic character development. We'll look at samples from current authors, analyze their writing, and apply the different literary techniques to enhance our own stories. Participants can either bring a draft of a story they are currently working on, or just come and get ideas on how to get started. All are welcome, and no experience is needed, just a love of writing and some creative ideas!
