December 9th:


Gender, I Don’t Even Know Her!
JR Mahung
Thursday, December 9th from 4:00pm - 5:30pm
via Zoom

In their poem "Fairytales" Jasmin Roberts presents the story of binary gender as a fantasy. They ask what about those of us who don't quite fit the models of gender we've been expected to follow--the girls who like sports, the boys who wear dresses, the many of us who don't fit any specific gendered category? In this session, we will explore this question in writing. Learn more and register.


December 11th:


An Afternoon of Mystery!
Peter Medeiros
Saturday, December 11th from 12:00pm - 3:00pm
via Zoom

The early mystery writers knew how to pack intrigue, speculation, drama, and resolution…all into a compact form! In this course, we will endeavor to do the same. This class will explore how elements of mystery can be used in shorter works, whether short fiction, poetry—or even nonfiction and memoir! Learn more and register.


Form, Reform, Transform: Playing with Formal Poetry
Sara Rivera
Saturday, December 11th from 12:00pm - 3:00pm
via Zoom

In this class, we’ll look at poetic forms not as sets of rules or standards meant to constrict your imagination, but as opportunities to play with language, open up new possibilities in your poetry, and create resonance between form and content. Learn more and register.


Adapting Stories to Film
Paloma Valenzuela
Saturday, December 11th from 12:00pm - 3:00pm
via Zoom

This short workshop is a fun exploration into adapting stories to a film script. We will be discussing different examples of adaptations from media like news articles, novels, short stories and even texts and tweets. Learn more and register.
