Diving into the Weird with Leticia Urieta
Ever wondered what blending genres of horror, folktales and traditional stories, as well as magical imaginings, could mean for your work? In this generative writing workshop for adults 16+, we will explore short stories, poems and hybrid pieces that unlock the strange, the magical, the grotesque, and the beautiful that we find in our everyday lives. You will have the opportunity to find the weird in the ordinary, explore traditional stories and urban legends, and reimagine realities.
Who should take this class? Storytellers of all levels interested in poetry, prose and genre-bending work who are eager to write about the weird.
Tuesdays, February 7, 14, 21, 28 & March 7, 14, 2023, 6:30pm-8:30pm CST, via Zoom
