The short story is its own artform with its own nuance and emphasis. Edgar Allan Poe spoke of the form as providing “a single and unique effect” and believed that every word must be in service to that effect—more in line with poetry, maybe, than other types of prose writing. Join Kim Suhr, author & Director of Red Oak Writing, in this workshop to discuss selected example stories, practice writing techniques & exercises, and optionally receive feedback on excerpts from works in progress.
