Hone Your Draft Six-week Series
Wed, 3 May 2017, 10:00 AM – Wed, 7 Jun 2017, 2:00 PM MDT
Space limited to five writers. Non-local writers welcome: E-mail option available
Submissions can include one or more short stories, flash fiction or short fiction (stories up to 1,000 words) personal narratives, creative non-fiction or a combination of any one of these. With the longer word count options, portions of novels may also be submitted. No poetry please. If you are unsure which option is best for you, contact me before enrolling as refunds are not possible. Thank-you.
Writing is a process and it can take many weeks, months or sometimes years to hone a story to the point where you believe it is finished. You may well complete a story to your satisfaction during these six weeks but even if you find the work at a better place than when you started, you will have accomplished something positive. I cannot guarantee publication of your work but I can give you feedback and help you on your way.
**Please note that grammar knowledge is assumed. If you need help with grammar and English, there are many classes offered at colleges or universities to help you brush up on these skills. :)
