Do you find yourself stuck at the beginning of writing stories and never finishing them? Or never getting around to taking that final step of sending them out for publication? In this class for students with some writing experience (including former Grotto students), we will go deeper into finishing our work and sending it out for publication. We will learn how to edit our own work, develop buddy relationships for sending things out, and explore markets for our work. I will give written and in-class feedback on your stories. Take that final step and start sending your work out, because a story in the drawer will never be read.
