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.
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.
