Short Prose Workshop with Zachary Schomburg


Join Zachary Schomburg this fall at Outlet for a six week workshop focused on generating short prose. 

Through prompts, exercises and guided readings that focus on prose poetry, flash fiction, short lyric essay, short non-fiction, micro-memoir, short biography, etc, participants will compose a series of new prose pieces and discover new approaches to writing in condensed spaces. 

After each workshop, Zachary will give the group a prompt/assignment to complete for the week, one that addresses some aspect of prose writing brought up in your group conversations. The participants will spend the beginning of the following week's workshop discussing your experiences with the assignment.

Our workshop will be capped at 6 people. We will meet once per week on Tuesday evenings from 5:30-8:30pm for 6 total weeks beginning Nov. 6. Each participant will get about 20 minutes of focused group discussion by the group at each meeting. Our pieces will be posted in a shared google doc 24 hours before each meeting. Each piece will be workshopped for about 20 minutes.

$200 total per person for the 6 weeks.
