In this experiential workshop we’ll look at proverbial writing in poems, and excerpts from fiction and memoir by James Dickey, Joseph Bathanti, James Wright, Flannery O’Connor and others. Selected passages represent or reflect upon proverbs—like “Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder,” “A Dog is a Man’s Best Friend,” and “A Good Man is Hard to Find.” Participants will then develop their own drafts in the form of flash fiction, poems, memoir extracts, or story openings.
