Expired Make Your Titles Do More of the Heavy Lifting

Titles should serve your poetry and prose rather than simply helping to navigate the contents page. Using poetry titles as examples so we can cover more ground during this seminar, together we’ll look at titles that work hard and offer zing and pizzazz so that your own titles will entice readers and better serve your writing. What is covered in this seminar applies to prose—especially flash fiction, flash nonfiction, short stories, and personal essays.

Shuly Xóchitl Cawood grew up writing stories on her father’s blue Selectric typewriter. Her most recent book, Trouble Can Be So Beautiful at the Beginning: poems (Mercer University Press), won the Adrienne Bond Award for Poetry. Cawood’s other books include A Small Thing to Want: stories (Press 53) and the memoir, The Going and Goodbye (Platypus Press). Shuly loves to hike in the woods, doodle with her Crayola markers, and teach writing workshops. Learn more at www.shulycawood.com.
