Cullman Center Institute for Teachers: Life into Fiction: A Creative Writing Workshop (spring break)
KATE WALBERT, Instructor
Using Eudora Welty’s memoir One Writer’s Beginnings, this workshop examines ways in which a life’s beginnings can be mined to shape and inform fiction, with particular emphasis on T.S. Eliot’s notion of the ‘objective correlative.’ Participants will conduct related writing exercises, creating short fiction from their own early pasts.
Kate Walbert is the author of the novels Where She Went, The Gardens of Kyoto, Our Kind, and A Short History of Women, which she is currently adapting for the stage. Her short fiction has appeared in Best American Short Stories, the O. Henry Prize Stories, The New Yorker, and The Paris Review.
