Short Stories, Big Impact: First Person

Looking to discover a great “new” author or just want to re-visit a favorite? Want to read but a scattered attention span has you down? It’s summer -- go short! According to Nava Atlas, “A short story is a fantastic way to get a sense of an author’s voice…Building suspense and getting the reader to care about the characters (in a short span of pages) are true marks of craftsmanship.” Join Roz Kubek for interesting, lively and focused Zoom introductions to some great American women authors and a sampling of their classic stories. You can sign up for one, some, or all sessions.

Note: Space is limited for all workshops (first come/first served) to provide participants with a satisfying Zoom workshop experience.‚Äč
