Put the Pieces Where You May: On the Use of Literary Fragments

The literary fragment is undergoing a renaissance in contemporary literary spheres. In this workshop, we will explore the literary fragment as a narrative strategy for creating stories, poems, essays, or hybrids. Through discussions and in workshop writing and sharing, we’ll experiment with the fragment as a storytelling strategy in terms of image, narrative juxtaposition, and narrative braiding.
