Join us this Summer for JLF Colorado's Summer Writing Workshops: $12!

Stay tuned for July, August, and September workshops!

Writer's Workshop: Come Re-wild your narrative structure... Episodic, braided, flash, oh my!

Whether you write fiction or non, it’s always fun to experiment with new forms! Trending these days in the evolution of writing - is the episodic essay (or episodic fiction), told in fragmented bits. There's also the braided essay, and the flash-essay. Each of these unique forms has an art to it, and that’s what we’ll be discussing and writing. If you aren’t familiar with these terms, no worries – you'll find out soon. Come play and experiment with some new writing forms! Open to all levels, genres and pens. Tickets sales help fund the Jaipur Literature Festival that takes place in Colorado every September where we are able to bring the globes favorite writers, journalists and global influencers.
