Unlocking Your Story: Forms and Genres, A Mashup 2019
October 24 - 27, 2019
Is your work-in-progress begging to break free? Find the form that best fits the story you hope to tell.
Join Newbery winner Kathi Appelt and author Lindsey Lane for an investigation into the dynamic shape of your story. Explore the important elements that make up a story as well as how these elements shift inside various formats and genres.
In the workshop, we’re going to look hard at the various forms of our stories to see whether or not the form feels organic. Moreover, we’ll challenge each other to test the story in forms that may surprise you. In the process, we’ll take a look at genres, too.
For example, a prose novel might work better as a novel-in-verse, or a poem might want to transform into a picture book, or the truth of nonfiction might need to see itself in a novel.
