Unlike life, fiction does not have to follow the rules of linear time. As writers, we get to bend, cut, reposition, and realign time to best serve our stories. In this workshop, we’ll explore a variety of different ways to use time to our advantage, enriching and expanding storylines and plot. We will look at examples from fiction, drama, and film, and we’ll spend plenty of time writing and rearranging our own work. Please bring a pen and paper or a laptop computer for in-session writing. 

Virginia Reeves is a graduate of the Michener Center for Writers at the University of Texas at Austin.

She has spent the majority of her life in Montana and recently returned to Helena with her husband, two daughters, and their three-legged pit bull.
