writing the world beyond
Sunday, October 4, 2020, 3 PM – 4:15 PM EST
Geography and landscape shape us. Weather blows in through our souls. The language of the world beyond takes on many shapes and meanings. This workshop will draw our attention to the world-writing approaches taken by writers like Anthony Shadid, Orhan Pamuk, Carolyn Forche, Philip Connors, Will Dowd, and Inara Verzemnieks, prompt memories through a series of question cascades, and offer exercises that will leave participants with more insights into their own approach to writing the world beyond.
