*Sold Out* Embracing Uncertainty: An Olio Writing Workshop

*This workshop is sold out. If you'd like us to add a second session, email [email protected] Thank you!* 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. This writing workshop explores hybrid forms of writing about the self. We 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. *If cost of this seminar is prohibitive, please email us at [email protected] and we will try our best to accommodate*
