Event description

Description

This workshop will explore how we might expand a brief, concentrated short moment into a longer nonfiction narrative, one that stores time and revels in the necessary extravagance of words and ideas at play. How do we move from a single thread to a complexly woven tapestry? How can a longer length allow us to explore the tangles that we trim when brevity is the aim?
