Does This Come in Another Size? With Wendy Wagner


October 4, 2022

Time (US Pacific):

6:30 pm


A critique workshop for short story writers who might be novelists—or the reverse!


Have you ever written a short story only to be told you’ve written the first chapter of a novel? This four-session workshop will help you decide what to do when you’re in that situation—and how to maneuver your terrific ideas into the forms that fits them best.

Over the course of four weeks, we’ll use discussion and critique to delve into what makes a terrific first chapter of a novel and contrast it to the shape of a stand-out short story. We’ll also explore audience expectations, the creative life, and our relationships to our craft. Come build your craft in a small, fun community!

For writers of all levels. Please come prepared to discuss reading material received before the first class, as well as exchange and critique work.
