Short Story Writing

Immerse yourself into a world of fantasy and imagination!

Agatha Christie once said that a short story was "something that can be read in an hour and remembered for a lifetime." However, good short stories don't just emerge by luck. Rather, they require a comprehensive, logical writing method that takes you from start to finish; that's exactly what this course is designed to do, enabling you to turn your creative ideas into short stories, either for pleasure or profit.

Short stories are one of the most well-liked forms of fiction. Many magazines depend on them to fill their allocated fiction pages, and paperback publishers find anthologies of short stories are popular sellers. So, short stories can become a rewarding form of writing, both financially and creatively.

With the help of Lifestyle Learning Direct’s Short Story Writing specialist course, you learn how to develop plots, build suspense and maintain interest, the techniques of relating characters to their allotted situations, as well as using elements of sympathy and empathy to create characters your readers will identify with.
