"I would really hope that this would make people see the short story as an important art, not just something you played around with until you got a novel."

- Alice Munro, Nobel Prize for Literature 2013 acceptance

10. Luísa Costa Gomes - Workshop: "PRINCÍPIOS/BEGINNINGS"

The workshop will focus on short stories and their openings. How do we start short stories? How do we create strong openings? How may that affect the remaining of the narrative? We will look at examples and share ideas in order to address these questions.
