Have you dreamed about getting a short story published in a literary journal like McSweeney’s? Now’s your chance! In this 5-week Los Angeles short story workshop, successful writer Ryan McIlvain will help you craft a brilliant, heartfelt tale about the human condition! Through fun, in-class writing exercises and engaging craft talks, he’ll help you brainstorm new ideas and write a draft of a Pulitzer prize-winning gem. He’ll show you how to hook readers with an engaging premise, share his method for discovering his characters and help you get to a killer ending in five pages or less. By end of the class, you’ll have a polished publication-ready short story as well as a solid plan for where to submit it. Experienced and beginning writers welcome. Before you know it, you will be ready to join the ranks of the 28 students who have published short stories after taking this class.

About
Message
When Marilyn Friedman first arrived in LA in 2004, she tried in vain to find a great writing class. She searched high and low, from Silverlake to Simi Valley. She braved cramped surroundings, stinky salads, lackluster writing prompts, and heavily medicated instructors. However, she realized that instead of looking for local writing classes, why not create her own for people to join her in. That's when she found her passion for teaching and writing. Almost ten years, hundreds of classes and three locations later she has built a community of amazing, supportive, and talented writers.
