A special workshop led by Catherine Owen 6:15 to 7:45Sliver, or flash, fiction is extremely brief, typically only a few hundred words or fewer in its entirety. In this 1.5 hour workshop, participants will explore three of the potential ingredients in sliver, or flash, fiction: the sonnet turn, a secret, and something said. We will write a curtal (shortened) sonnet to explore twists in perception, and draw from the visuals gifted us by the often unsaid and the things people say to compose a paragraph or two of long sliver fiction.
$40 includes a copy of The Day of the Dead (Caitlin Press) from which Catherine will read after the workshop. Limited to 8 participants – to register, or for questions, e-mail email@example.com
The workshop will be followed at 8 p.m. by Spoken INK, with guest readers Catherine Owen and Timothy Shay
