Judythe Guarnera leads a panel presentation on how to master writing skills by writing short stories, poems, essays, while building writing creds for your resume in the pursuit of Instant Gratification.

Writing short: stories, creative non-fiction—essays, poems, and memoir is a proven tactic to improve your writing skills. Whether you plan to write the great American novel,  your memoir, or enter contests or write for anthologies and online publications, watch your writing skills improve.

Writing Short brings instant gratification.
