Crafting a Short Story with Robert Boswell
In this class, I will try to teach you as much about crafting a short story as I can cram into the time. But it's a class, not a lecture. I will read a story aloud and we will discuss each part of it as we go. For teaching reasons, I do not want you to read the story in advance. We will discuss most of the standard aspects of craft, as well as matters that rarely appear in craft books, and I'll reveal a few of the secrets I've discovered about the writing of short fiction.
