Free Classes – How to write a short story

Let's write a short story

“The short story is still like the novel’s wayward younger brother, we know that it’s not respectable – but I think that can also add to the glory of it.” - Neil Gaiman

 In this class…

We will be celebrating short stories. Whether you consider them to be the wayward younger brother or literary masterpieces of utmost importance(I think they can be both,  at the same time) they are certainly worth writing. We will help you to figure out your story, how to tempt the muse, and how to complete the challenge. 

Join Mia to learn all about short stories.
