This session works through three elements that elevate short pieces into memorable and propulsive experiences: a haunting, inexplicable image, a tightly wound conceit, and a stubborn joke. Many short pieces share all three, some use only one or two, and we all use them when we’re writing, but often do so unconsciously. We’ll work through a couple of techniques to bring these elements to the forefront.
