Slowing Up: How a “Lazy and Happy” Approach to Fiction Can Revolutionize Your Writing

$135.00

We live in a world driven by deadlines, instant messaging, and “power poses,” where it’s tempting to treat our fiction as another item on the “to-do” list. But this is a sure way to make our characters clam up. What if writing felt less like a chore, and more like a hammock? Drawing on the insights of writing gurus such as Louise DeSalvo and Brenda Ueland, learn how to slow down and write with more depth and satisfaction. This stimulating workshop will enrich your writing process and make you fall in love with fiction writing all over again.

$90.00

This workshop traces the boundaries of poetry, all for the sake of pushing them out even further! Spend a day exploring everything from the prose poem’s penchant for unlikely subjects, to found poetry, to the world of verbo-visual poems that can be “read” or “viewed.” Through readings and writing exercises, widen your sense of what a poem can do or be. Try on many poetic hats, including using and working with real-world materials.
