The course is a straightforward Short Story Writing class taught by author Jon Katz. Each participant will offer a short story idea - the instructor must approve it - and will develop and write the story over the course of the class.  Participants will be coached as they refine the story idea, develop the structure of the piece and polish their writing. The goal is for all of us to complete a finished story at the end of the class,  hopefully to be published online or sold collectively as an e-book.

Students need nothing but themselves and their ideas. They can write on a laptop or pad or tablets, but they will need to print the stories out each week as they progress, and they must be prepared to share their work with the instructor and other participants. We will discuss the stories as a group and there will also be an opportunity for one-on-one feedback. Class format will include a Facebook page where we can talk to each other and discuss our work in between classes.

This small-group workshop will be limited to 8 participants and is open to anyone who wants to learn how to write a short story, professional writers or not.  New students are asked to offer at least one sample of their writing upon registration. In the samples, the instructor will be looking for energy, clarity, creativity and collegiality. At least one sample of your writing must be submitted for review in order to complete your registration.  Please email your submission in PDF format to gina@hubbardhall.org.
