The Writer’s Workshop
Every story can be told a thousand different ways. So what influences writers to choose the form, style and perspective that they do? Using a famous six-word short story as a jumping off point, we will discuss what even qualifies as a story and how particular methods of storytelling affect the reader’s experience. Students will then draft their own short-short story to share and discuss with the class. This workshop focuses on writing as a craft and the importance of constructive feedback in the creative process. Please come ready to think, write and collaborate. (And with a pen and paper, of course.)
