Outside the Box: Writing Experimental Fiction

Class Description

There are many rules when it comes to writing, but what happens when those rules are broken? In this 3-hour seminar, we will use writing exercises and group discussion to discover what experimental styles can add to our writing. Studying excerpts from writers such as Mark Z. Danielewski, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha and more, we will push the limits of the page to gain an entirely new perspective on the craft of writing. These authors are wildly innovative, playing with craft elements ranging from grammar to the very shape of the words on the page in order to build character and flesh out themes.

Writers of all levels are encouraged to join. This course is designed so that both emerging and established voices can gain new insights into what these exciting perspectives have to offer our work.
