Class description: This one-day workshop will explore how to use autobiographical incidents and information as the basis for writing fiction, specifically, a short story. There will be a no-fail, 100% guaranteed prompt designed to shake loose some long lost memories. There will be nuts-and-bolts discussions about conflict and character and setting. You will be required to tell some lies about the truth. The only things you need to bring to the workshop are your memory and a pencil. (Okay, pens are acceptable.)

His prose shines…” Gould’s work has appeared in Kenyon Review, Carolina Quarterly, New Madrid Journal, The Bitter Southerner, Black Warrior Review, Eclectica, The Raleigh Review, New Stories from the South, and New Southern Harmonies, among others. He is a two-time winner of the Artist Fellowship in Prose from the South Carolina Arts Commission and a past winner of the Fiction Fellowship from the South Carolina Academy of Authors.
