Writing Along the Seam

October 3-24,2020
Saturdays, 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. (4 sessions)
Online via Zoom
Instructor: Daniela Molnar

Consider the sphinx: head of a woman, haunches of a lion, wings of a bird. A creature powerful and wise enough to guard the seam between the sacred and the secular, life and afterlife. Hybrid forms of writing possess a similar power, harnessing two or more established forms to create something new, unique, and potent. When we reunite these forms, we welcome new, transformative forces into our work.

In this course, we will consider various hybrid literary forms: lyric essay, poetic memoir, prose poetry, flash fiction, and visual/verbal hybrids. We’ll consider the unique powers of each of these forms and see what they can offer our writing.
