Show & Tell

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 questions such as when you should rely on just the facts 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.
