Learn how to distill a message from whatever short story you want to tell, and tell it effectively.
I have been writing poetry and short stories my entire life, and have learned all the tricks of the trade. You have an idea, or a narrative, in mind, but the hard part is knowing what you want to say and how you want to say it. I can brainstorm, edit, and peer-write with you--your job is to come with the idea.
