Driving On with Wide Fictions: a Workshop


with Caroline Patterson

author, teacher at the University of Montana

In a warm, supportive workshop, novices and experienced writers can develop their stories using exercises designed to develop characterization, pacing, and dialogue. In the course of the 2-hour workshop participants will discuss story structure, voice, point of view, and language, but the emphasis will be helping writers develop and hone their voices. As the great Montana poet Richard Hugo said, “Some are doomed to small lives and small stories. Others drive on in wide fictions.”
