About the Class
Our world is full of misheard conversations, misread labels, misspoken phrases, old postcards from unknown lovers, lists from angry children found on a jog —these are the hidden gems of the creative process. From found texts and influences, participants will be encouraged to write in collaboration and examination of these found items.
In this generative workshop, we will discuss ways to tease setting, characters, themes, images, and other disparate parts of narrative craft. Then we’ll put our conversations to use through a variety of writing games, designed to inspire, create, and bring your ideas to the page. Be prepared to write in this fun and exploratory space!
