Keep Moving: 5 Stories in 6 Weeks - Online

Generate five new stories in just six weeks with a class designed to kick your writing into gear. Each week we'll share our writing, find inspiration in published stories, and respond to in-class exercises to get going on the next piece. Throughout the class we'll discuss craft, experiment with new forms, play with language and story, and find out what sparks our process. All genres of fiction are welcome. 

Instructor: Matt Weinkam is a writer, editor, and instructor with published work in Denver Quarterly, Sonora Review, New South, DIAGRAM, and Electric Literature. Matt is the prose editor of Gordon Square Review, a founding editor of Threadcount Magazine, and former managing editor of Passages North. He holds an MA in creative writing from Miami University, an MFA in fiction from Northern Michigan University, and he has taught creative writing as far away as Sun Yat-sen University in Zhuhai, China. He is currently the associate director of Literary Cleveland.


ONLINE CLASS INFO: Literature and community are powerful tonics in anxious times, providing comfort and inspiration. That’s why Lit Cleveland is staying open with online learning so you can continue to be active, be creative, and engage with other writers and readers in a meaningful way.
