July 2024 Confirmed
Discussion-based
A Feast of Writing!

In one weekend, we're going to celebrate creativity by attempting a complete short story, novelette, or novella! Our format will include SPACE class sessions, WriterSpace focused writing time in excellent company, Bandersnatch Breakout room for talking about our craft and peer feedback, and an enthusiastic celebration of Story. So sharpen your quills, line up the inkpots, make a BIG casserole to last the weekend.

Here's the plan: This weekend we're going to focus on writing three to five scenes. Whether these are individual pieces of flash fiction, one short story that uses all the scenes together, or a handful of scenes within a larger work, we're going to practice the skills of writing tension and release, character goals, and character changes at the scene level.

Our goal is to create a completed first draft in one weekend! Prompts, planning, focus methods, peer encouragement, machete editing, character crucibles — we’ll do it all. Writers will write between sessions as well as during.

You are going to end this amazing experience with a complete first draft of your story!
