Type(s): Workshop, Generative Workshop
Genre and Form(s): Fiction, Flash, Short Stories
How do we create an expansive world from a limited setting? How do writers maintain narrative movement when they're confined to a single household? In this workshop, we will examine the works of Shirley Jackson, Marilynne Robinson, as well as scenes from films that engage with similar narrative structures in order to investigate how invention can operate in a compact space. Our class will dive into these stories, perform writing exercises, and achieve a better understanding of how constraints in storytelling can allow for a more substantial sense of freedom.
