Short Story Revision Workshop
Follow up the Short Story Writing Workshop with hands-on group critique led by literary buckaroo Charli Mills who publishes a weekly flash fiction collection of stories from around the world. Everyone will receive basic instruction on what makes critique productive. We will pair up, read and ask questions and offer constructive feedback. The point is to help one another improve their submission piece to Selected Shorts, a live radio performance scheduled at the Rozsa Center on December 7, 2019. Bring two hard copies of your story to revise. Only those with completed drafts can participate.
