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 both showing and telling. When should you rely on just the facts? When should you linger in scene? We will find answers to these questions and more, reading and discussing authors who excel at balancing scene and exposition (Adichie, Didion, Mura, O’Faolain, etc.). Students will workshop a story, essay, or excerpt from a longer piece and can expect significant feedback from the instructor.
