Retreat Schedule

2020 Virtual Writing Workshop

Monday, July 6th — Online Retreat

Originating from CSC Campus

NOTE: Sessions Are Mountain Daylight Time (MDT)

9AM: Welcome Session

9:30 to 11:30 A.M.  “Flash-Demic” I:  The Art of Flash Nonfiction and the Heart Story

With Dinty W. Moore

The flash form – crafting concise stories that flash like lightning in a reader’s mind – is not only fun but also a perfect vehicle for experimentation and artistic growth. Students in this workshop will be offered a series of prompts to locate the “heart story,” or the invisible river of meaning, and will craft, then revise, unique flash essays, particularly as they relate to the current health-crisis and other conflicts in society.

 1:30 to 3 P.M.  “Flash-Demic” II:  Workhsop

With Dinty W. Moore

After working on their individual writing projects and responding to the prompts from the morning session, participants will share their work and get feedback from Dinty and the other writers attending.

3:30 to 5:30 P.M.   “American Community: A Fiction Exercise and Discussion.” 

With Alyson Hagy

This session will focus on a couple of things writers can do to “power up” their fiction. Alyson will read some short pieces to demonstrate, and then we will write a bit—and share.

5:30 to 6 P.M    Closing Remarks

Matthew Evertson, Steven Coughlin and Markus Jones
