Literary Collage: An Evolution Beyond Narrative

May 14, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


Is the novel dead? What can replace it or evolve beyond it in the twenty-first century? With acclaimed genre-bending, nonfiction writer and essayist David Shields, explore the anti-novel and collage. Create prose built from scraps and fragments, see what literary art forms emerge, and happily abandon any clear line between fiction and nonfiction.

His essays and stories have appeared in the New York Times Magazine, Harper’s Magazine, Salon, and Slate.
