Fiction Sessions

Thickening the Plot with Some Real Characters

Tuesday, June 5, 2012 @ The Pharmacy 7 p.m.

For this session, Meagan Cass and Ted Morrissey will focus on the narrative elements of plot and characterization.  It would be useful if Workshop participants would read the following short short stories beforehand:

Kevin Carey's "Home for the Holidays" (reprinted in Best of the Net 2011)
Stuart Dybek's "Brisket" (also from SmokeLong Quarterly)

To be a great writer, one must read great writing -- lots and lots of great writing. Feel free to come to the session with questions and comments about the stories.
