We stand with Black Lives Matter and those protesting for equality and reform. We will continue to amplify marginalized voices, and welcome all, their ideas, their events, and their words. Our words here are not enough, but we wanted to say we support you and will continue to do so through our actions.

Collisions: Short Story Workshop

January 14 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207
For writers at all levels

In this fiction workshop, we will explore how to use all manner of combustible collisions, both small and large, as generative fuel. Have a slew of disparate ideas stewing in your brain? We’ll investigate the power of unexpected pairings—how colliding seemingly unrelated images or ideas can spark something entirely original and point your work forward. And we’ll study different ways authors can open up possibilities for a story and introduce tension that keeps readers engaged. You will build your own stories and receive the focused attention of a workshop environment.

Thursdays, January 14-March 4, 2021
from 6:00-8:00 Pacific (eight sessions)
Instructor: Josha Nathan

Josha Nathan is a 2017 Oregon Literary Fellowship recipient. He earned his MFA at the University of Oregon and has taught at several institutions, including Portland Community College.
