Surprise Yourself; Surprise Your Reader with Ruth Danon
July 14 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm$124
Flannery O’Connor famously wrote: “no surprise for the writer, no surprise for the reader. This generative four-hour workshop open to prose writers and poets provides ways to access that which is present in the mind but not yet on the page or even in conscious intention.Writers will discover what they didn’t know they knew. This workshop utilizes play, writing, and feedback to locate and identify what’s most surprising and unexpected in raw text. Participants will leave the workshop with a deeper understanding of what’s at stake for them as writers and with a rough draft that can lead towards more finished material.
