From forms and functions of the short story to the architectonics of the novel; from sentence to chapter to finished plot: a half-day workshop with the author of The Umbrella Club and The Fern Tattoo.

This workshop is part anything-goes discussion, part close textual and stylistic work. Bring two pages of your own work, and a willingness to respond to the work of others as you'd have them respond to yours.

Supported by Pantera Press.

Duration: 3 hours
Maximum capacity: 16 participants
