Going to the Source: Family Poetry

What We Talk About When We Talk About Style

  • The Skillery

The goal of this afternoon workshop for writers of both fiction and nonfiction is to unpack the concept of style in writing. Participants will engage in a sort of literary treasure hunt of examining, defining, and imitating a variety of styles from within the literary canon, and then ultimately consider ways to sharpen, polish, and push the boundaries of our own styles.

Writing the Lyric Essay

Writing the Lyric Essay

  • The Skillery

Not a poem, not a narrative, not an idea-driven essay, but something other.  The lyric essay is that thing you’ve been writing that isn’t a story, isn’t a poem, isn’t anything familiar…but what it is shocks you, spurns you forward, and makes you feel uncomfortable. In this class—which is open to beginners of any type of writing who are curious about work that blurs genre lines—we will look to work between those lines.

Story Basics: A Crash Course in Fiction Writing

  • The Skillery

This three-hour class is designed for people new to fiction writing. Perhaps you are a reader who would like to try your hand at being on the other side of the equation. Maybe you have a story in your head and need a jumpstart to get it down on paper.  Or perhaps you’re just one of those people who likes to dabble in new endeavors. In this workshop, we’ll consider the basic ingredients of fiction—characters, plot, setting, and dialogue, and we’ll experiment by putting the ingredients to work with fun writing prompts and exercises.

THE END: A Poetry Workshop

  • The Skillery

Every poem must end. But how? When? To what effect? In this workshop, we will consider what the greats have to say on the subject, unravel the mysteries of what makes a memorable and satisfying ending, and nail down specific strategies we can put to work in our own poems. The class will be equal parts discussion and writing workshop.
