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. Christian Winn is The Community Library’s Writer-In-Residence at the historic Ernest and Mary Hemingway House. He was Idaho’s 2016-2019 Writer in Residence. Winn is the Boise-based founder of the Writers Write fiction workshop series, co-founder and former director of Storyfort, and producer of the Campfire Stories reading series and the Couch Surfer Artist Series. He is a graduate of Seattle Pacific University and the Boise State University MFA program.
