Writing About the Weird with Leticia Urieta
Thursday, Oct. 20, 2022, 6-9pm CST, via Zoom
Are you a storyteller? Have you ever considered how to push the boundaries of what storytelling could be? Ever wonder what blending genres of horror, folktales and traditional stories, as well as magical imaginings, could mean for your work? In this writing workshop for adults 16+, we will explore short stories, poems and hybrid pieces that help us reimagine realities and unlock the strange, the magical, the grotesque, and the beautiful that we find in our familial stories and our everyday lives.
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.
Class Participants will:
Draft 1-2 new pieces based on sample readings and class discussion.
Gain new insights into a diverse range of genres, from horror to speculative imaginings, to apply to their future writing.
Come away with an expanded knowledge of contemporary genres.
