Are you a storyteller? Have you ever considered how to push the boundaries of what storytelling could be? Ever wondered what blending genres of horror, folktales and traditional stories, as well as magical imaginings, could mean for your work? In this generative writing workshop for adults 16+, we will explore short stories, poems and hybrid pieces that unlock the strange, the magical, the grotesque, and the beautiful that we find in our everyday lives. You will have the opportunity to find the weird in the ordinary, explore traditional stories and urban legends, and reimagine realities.
Welcome! Our four-hour virtual poetry/paragraph workshop will focus on writing as a gift – to us, and from us to others. What do we already have in our vast realms of material? What new knowledge has been given to us during these past strange seasons? What have we left untouched for a long time? Where might we find a new treasure in what we thought we knew?
El taller de creación literaria no-ficción se enfocará en la idea del “tiempo”: pasado, presente, y futuro. Los integrantes del taller serán guiados a realizar una serie de escritos que subrayaran discusiones de tiempo, punto de vista, y navegar lo personal o privado al lado de lo público.
