Session Description

This generative workshop will help writers create new tread in the familiar terrain of their imaginations. Learning to write what you don’t know can stimulate your material in terms ofcontent, imagery, and form. With an emphasis on interrogating the unknown, we will read a spectrum of writers that seamlessly incorporate speculative influences into their work and then tryout some of these techniques on our own! You’ll be encouraged to work on crafting new material in this workshop, however, if you have an older piece that’s flat-lined, this is the perfect workshop to bring it back to life!
