We’ll meet for a 2-hour workshop where we’ll generate new work, experiment with genre (How could magical realism or surrealist elements help us tell a difficult story? What ARE the boundaries between fact and fiction?) and structure, take writing we’ve already drafted or new writing through thought-provoking revision stations, and break ourselves out of any worn-out limits. Bring something you’ve been working on or just show up with your computer–or pen and paper.
 
This workshop is open to writers of all experience levels! Limited to 20 participants. RSVP by emailing wren@feministpress.org by September 1st.
