Writing Short Stories

It was once said that a short story is "something that can be read in an hour and remembered for a lifetime." But writing short stories don't just emerge by luck. Rather, they require a comprehensive, logical writing method that takes you from start to finish. And that's exactly what the Writing Short Stories course is designed to help you with.

With our tutor support, you will master the craft of effective fiction writing: Vivid imagery that makes your reader see the setting and feel the atmosphere. Action and dialogue that make the audience care about your characters, believe their actions, and understand their motivations. Dramatic techniques that create surprising complications and nail-biting suspense...and so much more.

Learn how to create the character, use description, create a setting and plot a short story with this course in Short Story Writing.
