THE FULL STORY
Short Story School is an online learning community for aspiring short story writers. We offer a variety of classes, coaching, and resources to help you improve your writing skills and craft a compelling short story.
In 2017, Mia started a writing challenge called 12 Short Stories. To complete the challenge writers, have to write one short story per month over 12 consecutive months. It’s a wonderful challenge and writers get an exceptional amount of writing done. Over time, Mia wanted to offer the writers an opportunity to learn more about the craft and have a chance to explore and immerse themselves in short stories.
Our membership was created to help you improve your writing and become a part of a nurturing writing community.
