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.

Wendy Oleson – Big Characters (4/23-25)

In this generative, prompt-based workshop inspired by examples of contemporary, genre-defying work, you can give in to your obsessions. We’ll be reading and writing about BIG CHARACTERS—the person / animal / house / city / ocean / desert / painting / opera / talisman / ghost that inspires, emboldens, and takes over a text. We’ll explore how these entities generate tension, distort narrative structures, and demand space on the page. Your BIG CHARACTERS are loud and dangerous, quiet and mysterious, healing and hilarious: write them into the world.
