Advanced Short Story:
Revision to Submission
You’ve done the “hard part”—you have written a story. But what does it take to launch your story from its final draft to a publishable finished work? How can you know when your story is really done and ready to submit?
This 6-week seminar will focus on the finishing touches with respect to character development, plot arc, chronology, and internal logic, as well as delve into detailed line-editing expertise. The final night of class will feature a round-table discussion and Q&A with Studio mentors and writers on where and how to submit for publication.
All participants must have a complete or nearly-complete draft of a story they would like to workshop and send out into the world.
