    [CANCELLED] Writing Together: An Evening with Jan Carson & JMU Short Story Authors

    Datum: 01.12.2022, 18:00 - 20:00 Uhr
    Ort: Online
    Vortragende*r: Jan Carson & JMU Authors


    During the 2021 summer semester, the award-winning Northern Irish author Jan Carson convened a short story writing workshop for students at the JMU Würzburg. Carson emphasized developing structure, characterization, and narratology, but also community. When writing together, she observed, you find “a whole community of other people who see the world a little bit the same as you and suddenly it doesn’t feel as lonely anymore.” Please join us for an evening with Jan Carson and JMU authors who will be sharing their short stories and their experiences of writing together with us.
