Words Intertwining: Braiding Your Writing

Ever read a prose piece and been blown away by the way the author has intertwined two story lines? Maybe half is a folktale, the other half is memoir, or half is Vulcan and the other half is emotionally resonant.

Whatever the case, braided prose can seem magical. But in reality it’s just a trick that anyone can learn.

We’ll read amazing examples of this format, fiction and non-fiction, and you’ll have an opportunity to write your own pieces during the workshop.

What Participants Will Take Away

  • Examples of this unique format.
  • Braiding fact with memoir, fact with fiction.
  • Braided pieces begun in the workshop to continue at home.

There will be an optional opportunity to share. Don’t feel like sharing? That’s totally fine.
