Common Threads: Building a Collection with Kate Finegan & Stephanie Trott
This Weekend Workshop Intensive will offer time and space to start or make progress on a collection of prose, poetry, or hybrid work. This collection might end up being a linked series, a chapbook, or even a full-length manuscript. Writers will use an existing piece as the basis for their collection and will apply strategies to identify and tease out themes and images within that piece. In addition to craft notes and written exercises, three live Zoom sessions will offer space for writing and discussion. Whether you’re currently working on a collection or not, this weekend will lay a foundation for future work that gets at the heart of what obsesses and delights you. Please note this is a generative workshop; it is not feedback-focused, though there will be opportunities to share your work.
In addition to written craft notes, exercises, and an interactive forum, we will meet live on Zoom on Friday at 7 p.m. & Saturday/Sunday at 4 p.m. (ET) for roughly 1.5 hours.
