Why is it that poets can experiment wildly and explode forms, but fiction writers seem tied to a set of “respectable” templates? In this hands-on workshop, participants are encouraged to explore the possibilities of fiction beyond the constraints of narrative, the artificiality of plot, the conventions of structure, the lines on the page. You will be introduced to writers from around the globe who push against the definitions of the story, and you will produce half a dozen short works using a variety of enjoyable, challenging writing approaches that you can further experiment with and twist after the workshop.

Award-winning fictioneer and writing teacher Stuart Ross offers a relaxed, supportive workshop for writers at all levels. $125. For more info or to pre-register, write razovsky@gmail.com.
