Author CD Mitchell will teach a 2-day course, “Writing and Marketing Short Fiction”, during the Fiction mini-workshop (June 16-17) of the SWA Writers Workshop, June 13-17, at Epworth-by-the-Sea on St. Simon’s Island, GA. His stories and essays have appeared in dozens of nationally and internationally recognized literary journals as well as several anthologies. With an MFA in creative writing from the University of Memphis, C.D.’s first short story collection, God's Naked Will, was released in the Fall 2013, followed in January 2014 by Alligator Stew, his second.
Praise for Alligator Stew:
"In these stories, Mitchell give us a style more like Twain updated...They are wonderful--yarns, the sort of gossipy good stuff you'd hear at the local diner--a place like Campbell's Cafe in Delbert, Arkansas. " ~~ The Southern Gentleman.
Writing and Marketing Short Fiction
We will discuss writing and marketing short fiction. We will speak of the elements of short fiction, what a short story can and should do. We will read and consider short shorts—less than 500 words—as well as longer short stories. How to piece together a story collection will also be discussed. I will also address publishing opportunities and where and how to submit polished work.
So are you ready to join us?
