Where’s the Story? [Gish Jen]
The classic short story focuses on what William Faulkner called “the human heart in conflict with itself.” In this workshop, we will analyze a story to see how that conflict drives story structure. We will then generate story ideas, evaluate them with the help of our classmates and, time allowing, write an opening paragraph ripe with promise. Experienced writers welcome but no experience necessary.
- Gish Jen will speak at Word Works | Gish Jen: Politics and Possibility on Thursday, February 20, at 7 pm.
