In this workshop we will use specific writing exercises to create and structure a short story. In addition to the concepts of character, conflict, choices, consequences, climax, and conclusions, we will also examine the uses of dialogue, the five senses, and point of view, in order to create the emotional impact that makes reading and writing a short story such a satisfying experience.
