Short stories are an excellent place to take risks, create a world and characters that interest you, but writing a short story doesn’t come without its challenges. Get started on mastering the art of writing by hearing from Central Florida Community Arts Teaching Artist Chris Hicks. In this session, Hicks shares how to create short stories by using descriptive words that capture the audience’s imagination.

By watching this session, you can expect to learn:

  • the roadmap to creating a short story.
  • how to create your own original work.
  • how to connect with other creative writers.

This program is presented by Chris Hicks and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation in collaboration with CFCArts.
