Would you like to write stories featuring recurring characters? Looking to put together a flash novella or a chapbook of linked stories? Would you like feedback on your existing connected stories?
CHARACTERS LIVING INSIDE US – Linked Stories Workshop will offer the writer a way to explore linked stories or novella-in-flash chapters with feedback. This is a work generative ‘early days’ novella-in-progress workshop. The 7-day workshop may be used in whatever way is most useful for each individual writer, depending on their needs and where they are in the process of linking stories and working with recurring characters.
As with all of my workshops, they are highly work generative, non-critical but HELPFUL.
Meg Pokrass has written six flash fiction collections, an award-winning collection of prose poetry, and a novella-in-flash from the Rose Metal Press. Her new novella in flash The Loss Detector was published in 2020 by Bamboo Dart Press.
