Find Your Form: Multigenre & Hybrid Creative Writing
February 11 @ 12:00 am - March 22 @ 5:00 pm$350
GWA presents our first online writing class!
Inspired by their close observations and readings, students will experiment with both poetry and prose forms and will consider the ways combining or changing genres can bring their stories to life. The workshop will emphasize discovering new and surprising sources of inspiration—from personal experience, from deep research of the student’s choice of topic, and from the strange and weird scientific world surrounding us. Students can expect to conclude the six-week course with a portfolio of multigenre creative work.
