In this workshop, Jimmy will be discussing the possibilities of form and structure in novel and memoir, the qualities of style, and the practical use of literary devices. He will be reading from numerous works and provide writing exercises that participants can take with them when the workshop ends. There will be plenty of time for a Q & A session, too!
