Show and Tell [Beth Slattery]
All Levels | Though many of us have heard the advice “show, don’t tell,” this workshop will embrace the practice of showing and telling. We will find answers to dilemmas such as when you should rely on just-the-facts-ma’am narrative and when you should linger in scene. We will read and discuss authors who excel at this combination (Adichie, Didion, Mura, O’Faolain, etc.). Students will workshop a story, essay, or excerpt from longer piece and can expect significant feedback from the instructor.
