Join author and photographer Stephen Legault to learn how to turn your creative writing ideas into short fiction or essays.

We’ll cover the fundamentals of good writing, including the development of an outline, narrative arc, character development, plot, and pacing, and how to keep your readers hanging on your every word. The basics of short fiction and non-fiction are similar, so with this program you’ll be learning how to take your creativity and shape it into two distinct genres.
