Writer’s Corner: Short Fiction in Theory and Practice — Session 2: Ernest Hemingway

April 3, 2021 at 5:00 pm BST

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected

Welcome to Writer’s Corner where we talk about and practice the craft of writing. Join Sylvia R in this session where we will focus on Hemingway. This session will focus on Hemingway and will be structured as follows:

Section 1: Discuss

We’ll dive into the formal qualities of “Indian Camp” (see pre-salon reading materials). We’ll discuss structure and form, plot (or the absence of it), characters, what resonates, and the why and how of it.

Section 2: Write

We’ll spend 1 hour silently writing together. You’re welcome to spend this time on short fiction, or on anything else: long fiction, non-fiction, journaling, academic papers, Twitter threads, …

Section 3: Exchange Feedback

We’ll hear how others read and understand our words. The aim is for everyone to receive individual feedback on their writing. Feedback can be on pieces you’ve created outside of the salon.

Pre-salon reading materials:
