Event Details

Same Time. Different Place: Writing the Simultaneous Narrative

Instructor: Joe Sacksteder (Interlochen Center for the Arts)

This workshop will confront one of the major limitations of creative writing as a medium/discipline: portraying two or more things happening at the same time. With examples from Gustave Flaubert's Madame Bovary, Valerie Laken's Separate Kingdoms, and David Connerley Nahm's Ancient Oceans of Central Kentucky, we will learn about three techniques for producing the effect of simultaneity. Attendees will generate new work using one of the described techniques to create simultaneous events. Everyone will be invited to share their writing for feedback from the instructor and the group. Discussion will also lead us into a greater understanding of how other artistic media/disciplines handle simultaneity. 

(Open to Teens & Adults)
