Description

Subject:

Secrets: Strategies for Story

In this fiction workshop we will explore secrets as a major component for storytelling. Secrets both separate and bind us. Writers will learn how to make powerful allusions in their writing to build plot and to develop character. In addition to learning the art of confession, we will also explore subtext as strategy and learn when and how to privilege the reader's experience.

Instructor: Sarah Elizabeth Schantz

​Sarah Elizabeth Schantz lives on the outskirts of Boulder, Colorado with her family in an old farmhouse where they are surrounded by open sky, coyote, and century-old cottonwoods. Her first novel Fig debuted from Simon & Schuster in 2015 and was selected by NPR as A Best Read of the Year before winning the 2016 Colorado Book Award. She is currently working on her second novel, Roadside Altars, and recently won first place for a short fiction contest hosted by The Adirondack Review.
