Images and Objects: Engaging Your Reader with Serena Crawford
As fiction writers, we strive to build worlds that readers can enter. We want our audience to experience our stories through our characters eyes and ears. In this workshop, we will explore the use of images and objects as a way to hook readers, immerse them in our stories, and keep them glued to the page. As we write and develop our craft, we will also have the chance to share our work. This will be an activity-based workshop with several writing activities/sessions, short craft discussions, analysis of a short excerpt, and opportunities for participants to share work.
Serena Crawfords story collection, Here Among Strangers, won the Spokane Prize for Short Fiction. Her work has appeared in Epoch, Ascent, The Rumpus, Beloit Fiction Journal, The McNeese Review, and elsewhere. She has taught creative writing for Writers in the Schools, the University of Portland, and the University of Oregon. The recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Creative Writing Fellowship and an Oregon Literary Fellowship, she lives in Portland, Oregon.
