The Art of the Short Story
MAC News Release
There will be an eight week creative writing course from March 24 to May 12 taught by internationally bestselling author and Molokai resident Brandon W. Jones, sponsored by the Molokai Arts Center (MAC). This class will meet once a week at Kaunakakai School to learn and discuss the mechanics of effective story writing, with the goal of producing one short story by the end of eight weeks.
Brandon will be available to give individual guidance and feedback, and there will be optional group critique sessions. While the course is designed as an eight-part whole, each class will focus on a fundamental element of the craft and can be taken on a drop-in basis. The class will meet on Tuesdays from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The cost for the entire eight weeks is $95 for the general public or $76 for MAC members. Drop-in rate is $20 per class, or $16 for MAC members. Special student rate for high school seniors and juniors $45. To register, or for more information, email Brandon at MolokaiStory@gmail.com.
Brandon hails originally from Idaho and is a long time resident of Molokai. He is best known for his internationally bestselling novel, “All Woman and Springtime,” which has been distributed across the globe in English and in translation.
The Molokai Arts Center is launching its new membership campaign with this class offering.
