    Are you trying to cover a hundred years of solitude in a hundred thousand words? Or maybe you’re the time traveler’s wife, waiting indefinitely to see your love again. Or are you Benjamin Buttoning your way to an early birth?

    As writers and readers, we all have the gift—or curse—of coming unstuck in time. The rules of linearity just don’t apply to us. In writing, we can explore an entire family history in a paragraph or a significant moment in a hundred pages. Whether you’re including flashbacks, flash forwards, or just stretching a single moment into an eternity, this workshop will analyze techniques for traveling through time on the page.
