In his workshop, Bud Smith will focus how to write from a seemingly mundane (and universal) starting point: personal anecdote, family story, a piece of simple gossip — and how to investigate that mundane starting point until it goes too far, reaches up and out towards the sublime. The world may seem cut and dry and without magic, but this workshop will argue against easy logic in our storytelling and ask, “What happens if we go too far and then go a little farther?” Through craft essays and a series of prompts, Bud Smith will guide participants on a three day weekend write-in where they will generate new pieces of flash fiction, take part in an online critique circle where participants will be given direction for further drafts, and be given ideas on where to submit this new work. A further reading list and film list will also be provided.
