Writing Workshop: Narratives of the Unconscious with Susan Tiberghien

05/11/2020 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm
Poetry
Workshop

What and where is story? Margaret Atwood writes, “Going into narrative is a dark road.” We will find our way into the dark, into the unconscious and bring our stories out into the light. Looking at examples from Orhan Pamuk, Toni Morrison,  and Terry Tempest Williams, we will craft our stories into journal entries, personal essays, short stories, poems. Our voices will bear witness in our turbulent times.

Tickets for this 3hour intensive are $124. Please register at:

Advanced Hybrid Poetry Workshop with Chris Campanioni

05/09/2020 - 12:30pm to 4:30pm
Poetry
Workshop

Workshop Objective: To straddle the line between poetry & prose, essay & narrative, list & analysis. I’d like to think of the hybrid form as a map, an itinerary, an index, a choreographed movement that allows one to move between text & context, past & present, meaning & making—& moreover, the moment of making. On the fly. In this one-day workshop, we’ll learn to embody the liminal hybrid form by embracing our own liminal, intertextual, fluid, often performative, identities.

Writing Workshop: Embracing “Plausible Magic” In Your Fiction with David Queen

04/23/2020 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm
Fiction
Workshop

Plausible magic is a technique that suggests an unbelievable—and often surreal—scenario can arise from “believable” character action and reasonable narrative means. Plausible magic is ordinary life rendered strange through the strength of the author’s vision. In this course, students will read and discuss the wonderfully bizarre stories of Alexandra Kleeman, Donald Antrim, Camille Bordas, Joy Williams, and more.
