In this three-hour class, we will look at writing in the fabulist tradition: fable, myth, fairytale, or magic. Lessons are designed for writing in smaller forms, either prose or poetry. We’ll read examples from literature and use writing prompts to explore the effects of using fabulist elements in our narratives. Students will be introduced to how fabulist elements can layer meaning, extend metaphor, and further storytelling.

Catherine Moore is the author of several collections including her latest, Borrowings of the Shan Van Vocht (Unsolicited Press. 2020), lyrical pieces in the voices of bog bodies. She is also the co-editor of FIOLET & WING: An Anthology of Domestic Fabulist Poetry. A Hambidge fellow, her work is widely published and her honors include Yemassee Journal’s Fiction Prize, the Southeast Review’s Poetry Prize, and inclusion in the juried BEST SMALL FICTIONS. Catherine holds a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing and she teaches. http://catherinemooreauthor.com/

What Our Students Say

"Catherine Moore is so very eloquent and hugely relatable as an instructor. She moved through the class at a great pace and often checked in for feedback and discussion. I’m excited to read her work and take more classes/workshops with her! It’s rare to find highly applicable writing craft content with examples. Her well of empathy to all levels or writer and ability to bridge gaps between formulaic knowledge and inspiration to create is what makes her an absolute joy to learn from!"
