Line, Voice, Story:  Let the Poetry of Larry Levis Be Our Guide

October 7

Take a deep dive into the poetry of Larry Levis, reading in community and writing in response together. In this weekly workshop, we read aloud together for the first hour and in the second hour, we write independently. You will receive supplemental materials weekly, including a mix of writing prompts, essays, interviews, and links for further reading. In our final meeting, we will celebrate and share all of our newly generated work.

Eight Literary Jailbreaks beyond Traditional Narrative

October 10 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm UTC+5

Reinvigorate your approach to nonfiction by joining New York Times bestselling author David Shields for three Zoom workshops that examine eight “breaks” from traditional narrative. In this class (lecture, handouts, class discussion), you’ll explore the myriad ways in which you might deploy similar strategies in your own work. By studying brevity, diary, collage, remix, appropriation, photo, film, and collaboration, you can consider a book or essay or story or novel as a less dutifully linear operation. Maybe it could be more liberatingly open-ended/open-minded? You’ll take away from this workshop newly drafted works and innovative approaches that will enrich your writing life.

Welcome to the world of Noir, where the streets are dark with something more than night. Join us for a literary joyride through Texas and the West, down Park Avenue, and into the frigid Nordic landscape, a journey where the desperate and duplicitous encounter corruption, betrayal, and death - and no one comes out unscathed. Explore four timeless hardboiled classics: Dashiell Hammett’s Red Harvest, which started it all; Laura, The Getaway, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
