This workshop blends study of craft with practice. Participants will be asked to read and analyze one classic published short story (6 total) that we will study in the first half of the workshop. Participants also will create and share ONE original short story for workshop and in return you’ll get reader-response feedback. Learn new craft tricks, make some new writing friends, and enjoy a safe, supportive environment for sharing and nurturing your creative self.

Limit: 12 participants

Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this {article, book, exhibition, film, program, database, report, Web resource}, do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities or Humanities North Dakota.

However, in an increasingly polarized world, we at Humanities North Dakota believe that being open-minded is necessary to thinking critically and rationally.

Therefore, our programs and classes reflect our own open-mindedness in the inquiry, seeking, and acquiring of scholars to speak at our events and teach classes for our Public University.

To that end, we encourage our participants to join us in stepping outside our comfort zones and considering other perspectives and ideas by being open-minded while attending HND events featuring scholars who hold a variety of opinions, some being opposite of our own held beliefs.
