Why do we tell stories that aren’t even true? Why do we tell stories at all? Whose truth are we telling, and how do we decide the best ways, the best angles, to craft the telling? In this workshop, we’ll create stories— on the page, certainly, and beyond it— in audio form, perhaps in monologue form, perhaps as a graphic novel/story— and consider the questions central to that telling.

How do we create character, setting, tone? What’s left in, and what’s left out? What are the narrative structures that might best suit the work? What’s the best medium for the telling? In this creative writing workshop, we’ll work across genres as we consider possibilities and elements of story, of craft, and the many ways that stories come to life as we make them into so many new realities.
