Winter 2020: Collisions: Short Story Workshop


Out of stock


January 14–February 18, 2020
Tuesdays, 7:00–9:00 p.m. (six sessions)
Instructor: Josha Nathan
For writers at all levels

In this fiction workshop, we will explore how to use all manner of combustible collisions, both small and large, as generative fuel. Have a slew of disparate ideas stewing in your brain? We’ll investigate the power of unexpected pairings—how colliding seemingly unrelated images or ideas can spark something entirely original and point your work forward. You will build your own stories and receive the focused attention of a workshop environment. All levels
