Olios: Drop-in classes led by professors
In this creative writing workshop, we’ll scavenge, recycle, rebuild, and renovate. We’ll experiment with hermit crab essays/stories, as well as erasure and found poetry. All you need is word processing software (google docs is fine), an internet browser, and a playful mindset.
Embracing Uncertainty: Writing the Hybrid Series
A provocative manifesto for writing about oneself, one's experience, one's history: Stand up to your inner authoritarian. Realism is unreliable. Memory is a convincing dreamstate. Alternative facts are not always malignant. Embrace uncertainty: uncover new truths by mixing modes, forms, and genres.
These writing workshops explore hybrid forms of writing about the self. These creative nonfiction writing workshops ask you to fill in the blanks with fiction; to capsize your reportage in a poem; to tell stories about yourself and your people in the truest way possible: by blurring boundaries.
