In this three-hour workshop we will take a close look and deep dive into a handful of Ernest Hemingway’s short stories and personal essays both as readers and as writers. We will examine Hemingway’s literary techniques in these short form pieces in terms of style, mood, voice, character development, scene setting, use of dialogue, and the works’ overall artful impact. We will also use these Hemingway pieces as inspirational models for creating the beginnings of our own new works of fiction and nonfiction during the workshop.
Registration required. Limited to 15 attendees. This workshop will be held outdoors, weather permitting.
