Preregistration is required for the class. (See below)

This workshop is being offered for free for Worcester residents through a grant from the Greater Worcester Foundation.

This four hour workshop introduces the short story—what it is and what it isn’t—how to find inspiration for and develop one, and how to transform a chapter of a longer piece or a memoir into a self-contained “short form” work of fiction. Writers will practice both reading and writing short stories with the intention of producing at least one work that is “completed, but not finished. By the end of the session, writers should have the tools necessary to make and implement decisions regarding their short-form projects.

Winona Winkler Wendth holds an MFA in literature and writing with an emphasis on creative non-fiction from the Bennington Writing Seminars. She teaches writing, literature, and other humanities courses at Quinsigamond Community College. Wendth has been a workshop leader in Lancaster since 2011 and a writing mentor since 2009. Her work appears frequently in print and online literary journals and was listed in Best American Essays/2010. She writes both fiction and creative non-fiction and is working on a collection of memoiristic essays as well as a short novel.
