Uncharted Narratives: Exploring ‘The Third Option’ with Laurie Steed

How does J.D. Salinger play with audience expectation in ‘Teddy’? What is the secret ingredient in Peter Goldsworthy’s The List of All Answers? Which single decision in Patrick Cullen’s ‘Scar Tissue’ takes it from memorable to unforgettable?

Using exercises and examples from short story masters including Lorrie Moore, Miranda July, and Ryan O’Neill, workshop participants will explore ‘the third option’, a plot technique designed to open up otherwise predictable narratives.
