How do you write a story that feels alive? What makes a story different from an anecdote?

Join renowned urban fantasy writer Daniel José Older for a 40-minute dive into the fundamentals of narrative storytelling!

Energetic, bite-sized lessons explore:

  • The "4 C's" of storytelling: character, conflict, context, and craft
  • Breaking down how each "C" works in Older's short story, Salsa Nocturna
  • Tools and questions to ask yourself as you're developing your own story

This class is for creative writers (both aspiring and established), and everyone who wants a deeper understanding of what makes a great story so captivating. You'll leave this class armed with a tried-and-true framework for writing your own fictional short story, and inspired to put pen to paper.
