Writing the Short Story
w/ Chris Rosales
In this workshop beginner and practicing fiction writers will generate new work through a variety of experiments. As a part of this experience and as a way to mine for information and inspiration, we will continuously take inventory of our narrative preferences, tendencies, and aspirations. We will consider the relationship between form and content, look closely at language at the level of the line, and broadly at story development at the level of plot and structure. Additionally, we will investigate narrative theories and explore strategies to uncover fresh, powerful ways to articulate our ideas and tell our stories.
