Nikki Baird, Anthology Chair, will lead a workshop on everything you need to know about the anthology. The workshop will cover the theme and resources for the theme, Crossing Colfax, elements of strong short story writing, and how it’s different from writing a novel (besides being shorter), and what makes for a powerful short story. Nikki will be available to answer questions about the submission process and guidelines, as well as any other questions you can think of, and she’ll bring resources with her that can help for all of the topics mentioned above. Whether you plan on submitting for Anthology 2014 or not, this workshop will give you some great fundamentals on short story writing.
