Write Brain – Short and Sweet

By: Debbie Lane

Travis Herrmann at January Write Brain, PPW

The first Write Brain event of 2020 brought us the art of writing a short story, presented by Travis Heermann, falling perfectly in time with the call for submissions to the debut issue of the PPW Anthology!

Travis assured it would take more like six weeks to go over every aspect of this process thoroughly.  However, the information he presented covered not only the key steps for building a short story, but also direction on how and where to get a short story published. 

In addition to Travis’ presentation, his 81 page handout was made available for download to anyone in attendance.  Afterwards, I was asked if this workshop made the idea of writing a short story less daunting, and my answer had to be no. It doesn’t seem less daunting, but with instruction like this it definitely seems doable!
