Advanced Weeklong Fiction Workshop: Varieties of Plotting with Akhil Sharma

$925.00 Members
$985.00 Non-members

The most difficult issue for most developing writers is plotting. One way to think about plot is causation: A causes B, B causes C, C causes D. Another equally valid way to think of it is a rational organization of the passage of time. We'll be looking at both. We'll do this through examining our manuscripts, craft talks, and reading and discussing some of Chekhov's short stories. For the workshop, please bring along Selected Stories of Anton Chekhov translated by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky. Accepted participants will submit up to 20 pages by noon (MST) on May 18, and will have the opportunity to schedule a meeting with Sharma during the week of class.

Applications for Lit Fest advanced workshops close on March 14 and can be found here. Learn more about Lit Fest Advanced Workshops here. Accepted writers will be given the password to register for the workshop in late March.
