Backstory. Flashback. What is the difference? How much is too much? In this discussion-based craft workshop, we will read and analyze key examples from well-known authors such as Nick White, Alice Munro, and Sally Rooney, and will explore the ins and outs of tense, point of view, and narrative momentum when deciding where and when to employ flashback and backstory in your own fiction. You’ll leave this two-hour course armed with new tools and a deeper understanding of how to employ these different techniques and why.
