Class Description

You've taken 10 Weeks, 10 Stories (or 6 Weeks, 6 Stories) at Grub Street and have a treasure trove of tales. Now you're ready to revise and polish your pieces for publication. In this advanced course, we will focus on revising short fiction. As with our best-selling 10 Weeks/6 Weeks courses, we will be focusing on discovering new angles in our storytelling and bringing out the best in our drafts. Each class will include a short lecture on a specific and advanced craft element. We will also complete in-class diagnostic exercises on already written work and then take those drafts home to revise. Students will have three opportunities to submit these revisions for workshop over the course of the class. You’ll leave this class invigorated, with up to six story revisions, three workshopped stories, and a game plan for revising and completing your drafts in progress. Students should bring 13 copies of a short piece of fiction to the first class (no more than 1,000 words), and a revision goal they have for the story (for example: a stronger ending, a more dynamic scene or dialogue, etc.).

Scholarships Format/Location

Thanks to the excellent literary citizenship of our donors, scholarships are available for all GrubStreet classes. To apply, click the gray "APPLY FOR SCHOLARSHIP" button. In order to be considered for a scholarship, you must complete your application at least one week before the start date of a class. Please await our scholarship committee's decision before registering for the class. We cannot hold spots in classes, so the sooner you apply, the better. Scholarships cannot be applied retroactively.
