Wed. 2:30 – 5:25 pm

In this fiction writing workshop, we will explore how disciplines outsideof literature—from visual art, pop culture, music, history, politics,science, and much more—as well as experimental forms, can help uscreate stories that are innovative, fresh, and in conversation with theworld at large. For example: How can we synthesize history, visual art,and pop culture into our work, so that our stories have greatercomplexity? How can we expand our storytelling repertoire beyondrealism, and integrate techniques from other genres—poetry, nonfiction,speculative fiction—into our work? How can we use experimental forms,such as vignettes, diary entries, photographs, found objects, and more, asways of expanding upon our stories’ themes? Through an-class creativewriting exercises, and by examining the work of authors and artists fromthe U.S. and around the world, we will explore these questions. Ourreadings will primarily consist of work by BIPOC and queer artists.
