Women have produced some of the most inventive writing of the last century. This class will take its cues from writers such as Virginia Woolf, and Gertrude Stein—both of whom boldly subverted traditional sentence structure, logic, and narrative to create forms that rang true to their experience of the world. We’ll touch base with Gloria Anzaldua and Theresa Cha, hybrid writers who crafted fierce political and personal tomes out of the everyday scraps: recipes, worksheets, songs, photographs, and letters to government officials.

Led by Jennifer Colville, this class will be multi-genre, and generative, though time will be allotted to workshop pre-existing pieces. The class welcomes writers of all levels, those who already experiment to those who want to play, explore, and invent.

Workshop times:
Friday, November 16th, 6:00pm-7:30pm
Saturday, November 17th, 9:30am-3:30pm
Sunday, November 18th, 9:30am-3:30pm
