Crafting Unconventional Narratives

Crafting Unconventional Narratives

Not content with traditional ways of telling a story? Hoping to resist cliche? Looking for novel ways to write a novel? Whether it’s stream of consciousness, point of view, shifts in time, or experimenting with language and form, creating an original narrative isn’t easy. We’ll look at novels that have succeeded in creating powerful narratives through unique and idiosyncratic writing styles. We’ll focus on what makes an unconventional narrative work, concentrating on the chances the author took and how they paid off.

From William Faulkner to Virginia Woolf, Toni Morrison to Eimear McBride, some of the most powerful novels ever written were created by defying traditional forms of the novel and creating a work of singular style. Together, we’ll discover ways of bringing vibrant narratives to our own writing.
