Myla doesn't do it often, but every now and again, she writes a short story. Her first published story hasn't been seen outside the print anthology it originally appeared in and two others haven't been seen beyond the pages of Harper's...until now.

CREATIVE BOOTCAMP COMES TO YOUR LIVING ROOM

While I have mixed feelings about the 21st century, this is one aspect of the Internet Age that makes me feel warm and fuzzy.  I am very excited to be partnering with One Story magazine to offer my unique writing class, Creative Bootcamp, to anyone and everyone with an Internet connection, with the work designed to be done on your own time and at your own pace.  Join me for 8 days, starting October 14th, during which we'll be creating a supportive environment for brainstorming and new writing. I'll lead you through writing exercises that will jumpstart your imagination, as well as share my take on where ideas come from. Get a handle on voice, character, pacing and how to generate ideas when you’re feeling stumped. Writers of all levels are welcome. Go here for the fully skinny.
