Writefest kicks off with a series of four-day, genre-specific writing workshops. Held in beautiful artists' studios in Silver Street Studios, the Writefest Weekday Workshops will run Monday, May 27th - Thursday, May 30th, from 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM. Today we're highlighting this year's Literary Fiction workshop, taught by Thomas McNeely!
Literary fiction aims to tell imagined stories in beautiful language. With its focus on character development, it's a genre that explores psychological truths even though its characters and plots are completely fictional. To get a feel for literary fiction, check out Thomas's story "Sheep," first published in The Atlantic.
About the Writefest 19 Literary Fiction Workshop
"Literary Fiction" is what you make of it; it's a term for writing that aims to depict something true about life. In this craft-based workshop, we will blend critique of your short fiction or novel excerpts, discussion of published stories, and in-class exercises, with the aim of discovering your voice and articulating your truth in fiction.
