This advanced fiction workshop will support generous and thoughtful consideration of each manuscript. The spirit of the class will be lively, positive, and fun.
For consideration, submit either a short story or the first chapter of a novel with your initial registration (maximum 20 pages). (This submission need not be the same work you choose to workshop and may have been previously published. If you are accepted into the workshop, a work-in-progress submission will be due no later than December 1.) Submissions should be a single file in .doc format with the title “ShreveSub_YourName.doc”.
