Description of talk:
Whether you write novels, memoirs, or short stories, you don’t want to miss this one! Short stories do everything longer stories do, but backward and in high heels! They have to establish character quickly, often in just a few words or sentences. Plot is also condensed in short stories and, because of its small scope, it is often easier to see and understand how plot is working in a short story than in a longer work. Short stories often contain some kind of revelation or significant turning point in a character’s thought and/or action. This moment of realization is a major, defining attribute of the short story genre. Tradition and innovation meet in this unique workshop.
