crafting the short story

JCAS's(jersey city art school) newest writers' course is focusing on short fiction. Each participant will, over the span of 4 weeks, complete a draft of a short story and receive feedback on it from the rest of the group. We will review techniques as they are used by past masters of the craft, then apply them to our own work.

Register here: http://jcartschool.com/writing.html

Wednesdays from 7:30 to 9:30 PM, beginning Feb. 9th. See you there, and please spread the word!
