Editors of literary reviews and journals often advertise that they are looking for “cutting edge” stories or “experimental” stories. But they don’t explain what that means. We can.
In this workshop, we’ll look at example stories to show what sets them apart from traditional short stories. We’ll also have some writing prompts to shake up our own writing a bit.
Sign up early to receive email copies of the stories we’ll be examining.
The workshop will be led by Jeannette Brown, whose work has been published in Bellevue Literary Review,Southwestern American Literature, New Millennium Writings, Descant, Steel Toe Review, and other publications. She is the co-editor of Literary Lunch, a food anthology. She has enjoyed residencies at the Sewanee Writers’ Conference, Rivendell Writers’ Colony and Hedgebrook/India. She lives in Knoxville, Tenn., where she is a bookseller at Union Avenue Books.
