New to short fiction?
Start with Introduction to Short Fiction, a self-paced four-week online course perfect for those who have always wanted to write short fiction but don't know where to start.
Note: I don't take Joyland submissions from current participants in my workshops, from my evaluation or mentorship programs, or from my students at Western University.
Please don't submit to Joyland until a year has passed after you have worked with me as a mentor, coach, or workshop leader.
This excludes one-day workshops and self-paced workshops where I don't read the writing of the participants.
In this six-week online course, award-winning writer, editor, publisher, and creative writing instructor Kathryn Mockler will lead you through the process of idea generation, drafting, and revising a short story. Each week you will receive writing prompts and readings, and you will participate in the fiction workshop.
Format: This course is live and will take place online through video conferencing. This is a workshop-based course where you will share your short story with the class and receive constructive feedback on it from the instructor and the workshop participants.
Experience Level: This course is appropriate for all experience levels; however, it’s ideal if you’ve written at least one story prior to the start of this course or have taken an introductory creative writing course.
For those who have never written a story before or who are new to short fiction, I suggest completing my four-week self-paced online course Introduction to Short Fiction.

"I enjoyed the stories Kathryn chose, the prompts ... and how she broke down the elements of the short story in very concise and manageable bits. I found it inspiring, and enough work to keep me motivated to push myself along, without feeling overwhelmed throughout the course. I even liked the online platform. It's really simple and easy to use.
I thought I would be really terrified, but Kathryn has such a great way of keeping the terror at bay for me. She's like the writer whisperer! I also found her constructive criticism extremely helpful."

"What I particularly liked were Kathryn's lessons. They were brief, frank and digestible, easy enough to consult while reading and writing, acting like a little guide. Kathryn's revision suggestions were excellent ... Her written feedback was thorough, illuminating and very helpful."
