Service Description

Join award winning writer Teel James Glenn as he helps would-be and current writers explore the whys and whats of creating exciting, action filled short stories by examining the classics by the masters- and by writing and critiquing their own new masterpieces! The course will begin by reading and examining classics, with each story focusing on some aspect of the craft- Point-of-view, time, scene setting, motivation, engaging the senses or painting clear, logical action scenes. The students will then follow up by writing their own versions of some of the scenes in the classic tale and then creating their own short stories, reading their work out loud and giving each other, solid, positive feedback. Stories by E. A. Poe, Richard Connell, Ambrose Bierce, Rudyard Kipling, James Thurber, A. Conan Doyle, Saki, O. Henry, R. E. Howard, Guy De Maupassant and others will be read.
