About the Class:
This fiction workshop focuses on conversation and interaction instead of prescriptive criticism. Individuals will bring their own stories and workshop participants will seek out “constellations” in the work by discerning patterns on the page. Participants will be encouraged to fight the urge to “fix” or “clean up” or “tighten” our stories, which in a traditional workshop mo...del may lead to feelings of inadequacy and dismay. Instead, we’ll voice our curiosities, our observations, and the inadvertent echoes we perceived while reading one another’s work.
This course teaches the philosophy that each creative work is a wonder, as worthy of awe as a supernova or speck of space dust. Our intention is not an idea of correctness – our intention is to leave workshop feeling invigorated, encouraged, and aware of the greatness already within the universe on the page.
