Event description
We will be looking at structure and synchronicity in your fiction; making all the parts cohere to form a satisfying union.

About this event

What's this workshop about?

In this session we will look at how to make a short story feel satisfying and complete. We will be analysing stories, looking at techniques such as repetition, symbolism and imagery that writers use to create a semantic field of meaning, so that the end of the story is both surprising yet inevitable. We will then look at how to practice this in our own writing.

When does this workshop happen?

Sunday, January 30, 5 AM EST / 10 AM GMT / 3:30 PM IST

Two hours.

How is this workshop presented?

This workshop is online, live, and interactive. Participants are encouraged (but not required) to keep their video cameras on, as online events are much more fun when we can all see each other.

We'll gather on Google Meet, which is very similar to Zoom and has built-in closed captioning. I will send you the link for the workshop by November 7.

Will this workshop be recorded?

No, this workshop will not be recorded.

What is the Crow Collective?
