Memory-Mapping and the Concrete Felt-Life Detail
Instructor: Rusty Barnes

Saturday, November 4th
2:30-5:30PM
Class Limit: 8
$75.00

Many stories, true and not, exist in the ephemera of our earliest or most pungent memories, and by memory mapping we can access the specific details that can make the raw materials of a creative piece--poem, fiction, or essay--come to life for readers. Attendees, guided by the instructor's example, will draw--yes, hand-draw--detailed maps of a place--or even a single room--they've known over a long period of time in order to establish and tease out the strains of detail that will reveal character and plot in new and sometimes remarkable ways.

Instructor Rusty Barnes (http://www.rustybarnes.com) grew up in rural northern Appalachia. He received his B.A. from Mansfield University of Pennsylvania and his M.F.A. from Emerson College. His fiction, poetry and nonfiction have appeared in nearly three hundred journals and anthologies. In 2002 he co-founded Night Train, a literary journal which was featured in the Boston Globe, The New York Times, and on National Public Radio, ending its ten-year-run in February 2012, relaunching in 2014 long enough to do a best of anthology and one new print issue, ending its run (again) in 2015. He co-founded and currently edits Tough, a blogazine of crime fiction and occasional reviews (http://www.toughcrime.com).

Among his fourteen published and forthcoming books are a collection of flash fiction, Breaking it Down, and two traditional story collections, Mostly Redneck and Kraj: The Enforcer. His flash fiction appears in Best Small Fictions 2015, edited by Tara Masih and Robert Olen Butler, and he's published well over a hundred and fifty flash fictions.
