For many of us, the holidays are a time of celebration and stress, of relaxation and anxiety. The pressure to enjoy ourselves, and to be cheerful with one another, can cause buried resentments, regrets, and desires to rise to the surface, leading us to do and say things we wouldn't normally do and say. In this workshop, we'll explore the holidays as a powerful source of narrative tension. Through focused writing exercises and a discussion of published examples, we'll turn bad fruitcake and burnt turkey into narrative gold.
