Advanced Weeklong Nonfiction Workshop: The Archive as Story Builder with Sarah M. Broom

$925.00 Members
$985.00 Non-members

In this class, we’ll consider the use of documents, photographs, images, memories, objects, sounds, and more, in the layering and development of creative nonfiction stories.  Participants will also discuss matters related to structure, voice, narrative build, setting, and character development, especially in relationship to their own drafts, and how their personal archives can contribute richness to these elements. Through a combination of workshop, discussions, and in-class writing exercises, writers will leave with a set of tools with which to continue their projects and tackle revision. Writers accepted into the class are encouraged to read Annie Dillard’s The Writing Life and  Vivian Gornick’s Situation & Story and submit one chapter or essay of no more than 20 double-spaced pages by noon (MST) on May 11 and will have the opportunity to schedule a meeting with Broom 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.
