Philadelphia Stories Beginner Fiction Workshop

Philadelphia Stories Beginner Fiction Workshop:  An 8-week fiction workshop from the area’s popular magazine designed to offer inspiration, writing prompts, and peer critique for beginning writers.

The course:  This class focuses on writing short stories.  Students will write two short stories during the 8-week course.  No novel excerpts please as they are difficult to critique in a short course.  The goal of the workshop is to provide a safe and fun environment for beginning writers to delve into writing and learn through the peer-critique process.  

ModeratorSusan Barr-Toman earned an MFA in Creative Writing and Literature from Bennington College.  Her debut novel When Love Was Clean Underwear was selected by author Ann Hood as the winner of the Many Voices Project.  She teaches creative writing at Temple University.

Fee: $200.
