Where Do Writers Begin?
Are you thinking about writing short stories? Do you have some stories already under your belt? Are you uncertain about the different categories—horror, literary, flash…? And where do you send these pieces for publication once they’re done? In this ninety-minute session, writer and editor Becky Tuch will address these questions and more. She will discuss the essential elements of short fiction, break down the different categories of stories, and guide you toward the many publishing opportunities available for writers of short fiction. Participants will come away with a deeper understanding of the form, a better grasp on the short story market, and new writing inspiration.
