Form In Fiction: How to Use Form to Your Advantage

  • Firefly Farms 195 Tobby Hollow Lane Knoxville, TN, 37931 United States (map)

Join us for an exciting writing workshop, "Form in Fiction: How to Use Form to Your Advantage"" which focuses on the ways we can use form to help generate new works of fiction with our own Katherine Bell. 

In this workshop, we'll take a look at some formal short stories, including epistolary stories, fragmented or braided stories, and "unusual" point-of-view-driven stories, to see how the authors work within and beyond their chosen forms to craft successful and impactful short stories. Workshop participants will generate their own short stories inspired by the formal work we'll encounter and share their work in a creative environment. We will use this workshop to create new work and celebrate the joy of creating while under constraint. 

Katherine Bell is the current Writer-in-Residence at the Sundress Academy for the Arts in Knoxville, Tennessee. Originally from Frederick, Maryland, she earned her MFA from Eastern Washington University in 2017 and has been published in The Fem, Welter Literary Journal, Connotation Press, and others. 

Tickets are $25 or $15 for students and includes instruction, snacks, and drinks."
