By TKSellman on August 31, 2009
•MRC 101B: Rabbit’s Hat: (for magical realist writers) Sign up here
Duration: Three sessions of generative writing aided by prompts
Dates: September 17 through October 1 (Thurs)
Description:In this three-week online workshop, you’ll use your time generating new work and learning strategies for incorporating literary magical realism into your prose. Participants are expected to submit 1-3 new drafts (a total of 3,000 words) for review over the course of this workshop and will receive weekly prompts to get them started. I will offer my feedback on what works, what could be improved, what questions might linger, and how well you were able to capture elements of magical realism. My aim is to nurture your understanding of literary magical realism so that it becomes a natural and organic direction for your writing.
This class is appropriate for writers who are somewhat familiar with literary magical realism or speculative fiction. My specific focus will be on assisting writers in generating new work that shows a mastery of literary magical realism. Handouts will offer writing strategies and some light supplemental reading. This class is limited to 8 members and will meet with me through a private platform online. There is an orientation period so that participants can familiarize themselves with the platform (which is pretty easy to use). There is no live chat session for this workshop; the focus for now is to learn by doing; that is, generating new magical realist work and acquiring new tools for honing those skills. This workshop will be offered again in February 2010.
