Literary Arts Writing Workshop: 3-Week Short Story Intensive

For three consecutive Wednesdays this winter, I’ll be teaching a Short Story Intensive workshop to a small batch of students.

Wednesday, February 22 – 6:00-9:00PM

Wednesday, March 1- 6:00-9:00PM

Wednesday, March 8- 6:00-9:00PM

We will discuss all elements of the short story, from creating ideas through character, detail, plot, point of view all the way through to revision, and the revision that happens after you think you’re done revising. The pain and the glory both.

Each student will leave with a new story and likely several starts for new work as well.

Description

The most successful works of memoir, whether books or essays, combine self-imagination, a bare naked heart and a fearless dose of honesty. This workshop will be structured around finding our way into this place. Read excerpts, write, share work, and discuss different methods of non-fiction storytelling. We will investigate ways to unearth material from our lives and learn constructive editing techniques. Our focus together will be generating new work—you’ll likely leave with several fragments and starts, and one longer piece to return to on your own.
