“Stories That Stand Still” – A Discussion of Craft by Carmen Maria Machado

February 24, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

In this talk, we’ll explore the craft of writing fiction that doesn’t move—fiction contained in a single, discreet space as large as a house, and as small as a bed—and the implication it has for our understanding of gender, characterization, plot, and time. Stories discussed will include Angela Carter’s “The Fall-River Axe Murders,” Susan Glaspell’s “A Jury of Her Peers,” Kate Chopin’s “The Story of an Hour,” Nancy Hale’s “The Earliest Dreams,” and Lesley Nneka Arimah’s “The Future Looks Good.”

This Lecture is hosted by UA’s Department of English and the Creative Writing Program

Location: Gorgas Library’s Camellia Room (Room 2020)
