My House But Not My House: Surrealist Poetry & the Imagination 

October 26 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Gemini Ink, 1111 Navarro St
San Antonio, 78205 United States
+ Google Map
$140

What we love most about our dreams is also what can make them mysterious to us: they’re of our making, but out of our control. Surrealism aims to access the parts of our minds that build the imaginative landscapes we visit in our dreams, to turn those parts loose on our waking lives, and our writing. In this generative master class, we’ll explore the many functions of the mind’s eye—the imagination—in poetry, and revitalize our approaches to image-making.

The Art of the Opening with Andrew Porter

November 9 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Gemini Ink, 1111 Navarro St
San Antonio, 78205 United States
+ Google Map
$125

How does one create a compelling opening to a short story or novel? In this course, we'll examine not only what makes a good opening sentence, but also what makes a good opening paragraph or scene. We'll move beyond simply “hooking” the reader and explore strategies for quickly connecting readers with characters. Part of the class will be spent exploring these strategies and part will focus on exercises designed to create compelling openings yourself, openings you might one day use in your own fiction.
