A WORKSHOP TO EXPLORE VOICES THROUGH MULTIGENRES – POETRY/FICTION/NON-FICTION/HYBRID
Don’t plan it all. Let life surprise you a little.—Julia Alvarez, an icon who produces poetry, nonfiction, novels, young adult publications, and more
Join us as we transfer life’s surprises onto our pages to create new work. When we live a moment of loss, joy, or the humdrum of day-to-day living, we may be inspired to create a story, write a poem, and pen flash fiction. During a weekend of writing, exciting texts will be provided to open out pathways that will help to create space for writers to explore multiple genres for varying moments. By the end of the weekend, participants will have created multi-faceted work through which they can begin larger projects.
