Amber Sparks: Writing as Play: Using a Generative Approach to Finding Your Voice (5/14-16)
Writing is hard enough – why suck *all* the fun out of it? This workshop is an argument for play as a crucial part of the writing process at every stage, not just at the beginning. We’ll talk about and experiment with generative approaches to fiction, and about the importance of not-writing in the writing process. And we’ll create some stories – or the beginning of some stories – using these generative tools, in addition to providing you with more tools of your own and more avenues for continuing to experiment, noodle, and use play to find your narrative voice and style.
