“Writing the Between”
All-genre workshop 10AM – 5PM
Betweenness is usually something to avoid – the devil and the deep blue sea, between a rock and a hard place – yet writers need to engage with it.
Whether it’s between doubt and confidence, cultures, drafts, languages, time frames, genres, race, writing projects, different art forms, conflicting memories, identities, truth and fiction, betweeness is a dynamic site.
Betsy will establish a conceptual framework and provide a series of exercises to enable you to identify and access the greater narrative potential found in writing into, and out of, the betweenness in your writing.
There will be one short pre-workshop exercise to complete and bring to the workshop.
Fee due: February 1st, 2014
Location: the Plateau (Mont Royal Metro)
