Analyze classic and contemporary short stories with author Deepa Rajagopalan. Emulate the techniques examined to begin creating a short story. Please register. Adults.

In this workshop, we will take a close look at a few classic and contemporary short stories to analyze the opening paragraph, structural unity, dialogue, time, and the closing paragraph. Using a short writing prompt, you will write an opening paragraph of your story by emulating techniques that we examined. We will talk briefly about editing, and submitting to literary magazines/contests.
