As writers, one of the incredible tools we have is the ability to alter time on the page. Depending on impact, meaning, and relevance to the narrative and to our beloved characters, we can extend a moment to last for years, or, shorten decades to a sentence. In this one-time, three-hour class, we will look at examples of how time can be expanded and collapsed in prose and practice a variety of time bending strategies together. We will share what we create, receive supportive, encouraging feedback, and leave with ideas of what steps to take next. All levels of prose writers are welcome.

Jamie Figueroa (Afro-Taíno) is Boricua by way of Ohio, and longtime resident of northern New Mexico. Her writing has appeared in Agni, McSweeney's, American Short Fiction, Emergence Magazine, and Catapult among other journals. She is an associate professor at the Institute of American Indian Arts. Jamie’s novel, Brother, Sister, Mother, Explorer debuted in March 2021.  www.jamiefigueroa.com
