The Interlinked Story Collection with Cara Blue Adams
From the venue:
The interlinked short story collection is capacious. By considering a range of formal possibilities—from collections loosely linked by voice or theme to more traditionally linked collections united by place or character to novels that make use of the form of the collection through, for example, the use of an episodic structure—we will investigate ways to conceive of and begin (or finish!) book projects along this spectrum, guided by a sense of what the writer wants to collect.
In this two-hour workshop, we will also zero in on what makes for a strong opening sentence in a story and try writing some opening sentences of our own, developing a map for a potential book project.
