From generating ideas to pursuing publication, this class will provide a roadmap for short fiction. In this 3-week intensive workshop, Jen will provide idea-generating tools, including creative visualizations and mindfulness techniques to propel you into a deep and sustainable creative space. From there, you will learn how to write a strong opening, create vivid scenes that draw readers in and leave them with a satisfying ending. The class will include an ongoing writing workshop with feedback from fellow writers. It will conclude with personalized feedback from Jen, along with information about how and where to submit work to agents, contests, and literary journals.
