Virtual Writing Series: 100-Word Short Stories

Our bi-monthly Writing Series is going virtual (for now)!

Join us Wednesday, May 27th, for another Virtual Writing Session! This time we'll work on writing our own short stories — 100-Word Short Stories, to be exact! No matter what kind of writing you do, short stories are a great way to practice your craft and build your skills. We'll look at a few story samples to get inspired and see how it's done, then we'll work on creating some 100-word stories of our own! After you sign up, be thinking about topics and themes you might want to explore with your stores. Write them down and bring them to the session so you have something to build on. 

"M is for magic; all the letters are, if you put them together properly." —Neil Gaiman

This session will take place virtually via Zoom. Advance registration is required for participation. Once you complete your order, you will receive an email confirmation with the link to register for the appropriate Zoom session. 

We plan to offer as many upcoming virtual writing sessions as we can, so please mark your calendars and check back here for updated events!

Sign me up!

Read more about our writing sessions:

Writing sessions are held in the store every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month, (unless otherwise specified), from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., and will focus on building writing practice through prompts, writing exercises, and shared readings.

Sessions will incorporate general writing practice with timed prompts and reading out loud (always voluntary), as well as at least one writing exercise every session, varying based on the theme. Themes include character building, description, grammar, word play, short stories, memoir, etc. We'll do something new each week!

We invite special guest authors and writers to lead occasional sessions, so if you know someone who might be interested, of if you would like to lead a session yourself, please contact us at the bookstore!

Sessions are $15 and must be purchased in advance. Want to save money by attending more than one session? Purchase a 4-pack and attend any four sessions of your choice (they do not have to be consecutive) for just $50!
