Dive into Short Story Writing
We’ll examine short bits of writing from popular teen and middle grade authors like Suzanne Collins, Jason Reynolds, John Green, Elizabeth Acevedo, Gary Schmidt, Jerry Spinelli, Rainbow Rowell, Holly Black, Ray Bradbury, & Louis Sachar, to see how they make the magic happen. Then we’ll try out what they do by writing short exercises & short stories of our own. The instructor will offer thorough, encouraging, written responses.
