Register Here In fiction, narrators are key. Whether short story, novel, novella, flash, literary, or genre fiction, narrators establish style and tone. In this three-day workshop, we will explore some key narrative strategies that can be used in your work. For beginners and experienced writers alike, this workshop will focus on stylistic decisions all fiction writers must make. Learn how to polish (or un-polish) your narrator, select a narrative approach, or explore the boundaries of narration. If you have a manuscript in progress or want to generate something fresh, we will encourage you to share your work during the workshop and gather feedback from fellow classmates. While we will not do manuscript reviews, suggestions and support will be provided. In each session, we will proceed with two principles in mind: First, writers with all levels of experience can help one another. Second, fiction is art; its conventions and boundaries are meant to be explored.
