The Los Angeles Review has posted “Freele Pesters: Installment 3” – notes from the third week of their fiction workshop. This one includes Fiction Editor Stefanie Freele Pesters in conversation with Nancy Boutin, Prose Editor, and Joe Ponepinto, Book Review Editor, answering the question: “What styles or techniques (prose) have you read too much of? not enough of?”
Also included is Heather Freese (Contributor – “The Popular Girls’ Guide To Sticking It To Your Friends” LAR Issue 6) answering the question: “Should a reader have to ‘understand’ a story?” as well as other questions on issues of style and technique (including the use of second person).
Week Two focused on “Narrative Tension and Anticipation in the Short Story” and Week One on “The Importance of Beginnings” – both of which can be found in the Archives.
