The Archaeology of Fiction

with Ayşegül Savaş

This intensive three-week workshop, intended for experienced writers, will examine the various strata that form fictional worlds, from structural elements to the sense of enchantment and wonder. Each writer will present one piece (short story or novel excerpt) to the whole group and discuss a revision or a second text one-on-one with the instructor. Our focus will be to excavate the core of every piece, paying attention to the writer’s unique voice and style. We will also discuss additional readings and work on generative exercises. Participants must have work ready to submit prior to the beginning of the program.
