Julia Fine, whose debut novel was shortlisted for the Bram Stoker Superior First Book Award and the Chicago Review of Books Award, will look at the elements of genre fiction with a focus on how writers use genre as metaphor to subvert expectations and enhance their work. Attendees will read and discuss short story and novel excerpts that use genre expectations to lead us to larger truths, discuss how and when to break the molds of genre, and figure out which genre elements make the most sense for their individual project.
