Take a crash course in short story writing with the Fall for the Book team. In this fast-paced and interactive class, we’ll build a short story from the ground up using audience suggestions. Learn what it takes to write what fiction editors want to see, and then try it for yourself!

Her work appears in journals including SmokeLong Quarterly, Stirring, Seven Hills Review, Nimrod, Tahoma Literary Review, Jellyfish Review, Postcard Poetry and Prose, and in the Bloomsbury anthology Short-Form Writing.
Suzy Rigdon manages the festival and teaches at Mason. Her short prose has been published in Coldnoon Magazine, The Northern Virginia Review, Bartleby Snopes, and The Albion Review.
