Stories that Stick: Writing Your Fiction or Memoir
A 10-week workshop. The short story can be mined for writing wisdom across genres. What makes them stick with us for years after reading them? Structure, metaphor, dialogue, setting, character; all are at work. In a supportive environment, we'll crack open the secrets of the story together and apply them to our own writing. 

Come as you are, ready to roll up your sleeves and write whatever you're pulled to: creative nonfiction essays, memoir, and short stories.  The aim is to read stories each week, discuss them, workshop your own work, and expand our writerly tool boxes with prompts driven by the readings.

February 29 to May 2, 2024
Thursdays, 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM EST on Zoom
