Registration – “Time, Movement, & Memory” Virtual Workshop

“Time, Movement, & Memory: Charting Paths Without Plot” – Workshop Description:

Have you ever wanted to break the so-called “rules” of writing and experiment with your personal style? In this class, we’ll explore the craft tools for writing a freer, more unbound prose that remains grounded in the human experience while revisiting those age-old questions: What keeps us reading? How do we translate the genuine, complex experiences of life onto the page with meaning and authenticity? What if the stories we want to tell don’t follow cause-and-effect logic? We’ll approach writing with a more emotional logic, with organic structures and associational leaps, where we can beguile the reader with true theater of the mind.
