PRESENTER: Windy Lynn Harris

Friday, May 4, 3:00-4:00 p.m.

Short stories are being submitted and sold every single week. They are an incredibly popular form of fiction and gaining new ground in the publishing world. Readers love short stories because they offer a complete experience in a short amount of time; they can be read and enjoyed in one sitting. They don’t take long to write, either. This presentation will guide you through the process of crafting a short story that sells. There are five key elements: character, setting, plot, conflict, and theme. Learn how to braid these elements together for maximum impact in a small amount of space.
