Focus on the Short Story

Short stories allow you to explore your character’s choices within a limited number of words. The form challenges you to set things up right away. By writing short stories, you’ll learn how to structure your fiction for the greatest payoff. You may discover that you'd like to develop your short story into a full length novel.

Learn effective strategies in WDU's Focus on the Short Story Writing Workshop. You'll start by preparing a first draft. Your skills will be put to the test as you build the beginning, middle, and end to your story. You'll learn how to revise your work and make it better. Develop two short stories in class while receiving instructor feedback.

"I always start with a character. That character has a problem or a goal, and I set him or her in motion and see where things go, usually discovering the story sentence by sentence. My first drafts are a mess—usually incoherent and sketchy. But I love re-writing, and I do a lot of drafts. I add more than I cut with each draft, so my stories get longer the more I work on them."

  ~ Mark Spencer

One student said, “Mark Spencer is excellent. He has a great deal to teach and is ultimately highly encouraging.” Mark Spencer teaches the Short Story Workshop starting on March 17th. The course is fourteen weeks long and costs $449.99.
