Members Only Events.

We teach you about the short story form, help you get writing, give you feedback on your stories, and help you submit.

>>> Short Story Writers’ Group. A silly and hard-working bunch focused on providing each other with encouraging, incisive, and succinct feedback on short story manuscripts.

>>> Short Story Write-In. Two hours of silent, supported, focused writing time surrounded by other writers with the same goal.

>>> Short Story Club. Like a book club, but for short stories. Every month, we read a story and talk about it.

>>> Short Story Accounting. A monthly gathering to prepare our stories for the world, check in about submission goals, grieve rejections, and celebrate acceptances.
