Author’s Note: This week at the Port Townsend Writers Conference, I’m studying with Melissa Febos, a brilliant essayist and fabulous teacher. What follows is a writing exercise from her class yesterday—to establish the protagonist and her desire(s), a goal or something to pursue, tension or conflict, and a satisfying resolution — all in under 400 words. This is SO much fun!
