Hang on a second while we grab that post for you.
A year after being shortlisted for the Giller for her collection of short stories entitled This Cake is for the Party, Sarah Selecky is back with something a little bit different. She has started a digital writing course called Story is a State of Mind.
Let’s let the press release do a bit of talking:
"Story is a State of Mind is a groundbreaking and inspirational digital writing experience designed for people who want to hone their writing skills at their own pace…The versatility of Story is a State of Mind allows aspiring writers to focus on their craft while still maintaining their normal schedules."
The course is personalized, multimedia, and interactive.
"Elegant in appearance and totally user-friendly, Story is a State of Mind is ‘not just a writing course—it’s a writing ecosystem,’ says Selecky."
Sounds good! We like ecosystems more than courses, anyway.
p.s. — A couple of new online story mags doing cool stuff: Dragnet, where you get a beautiful touch of the handmade along with your digital reading, and Found Press - where you can download stories one by one for your ereader, or buy the whole issue at once. (I recommend Obscure Objects by Caroline Adderson.)
p.p.s. — it happens to be Year of the Short Story this year. Click here to read the YOSS Manifesto.
YOSS (Year Of the Short Story) aims to unite fellow writers and readers everywhere in one cause—to bring short fiction the larger audience it so richly deserves.
