Collect $45 or more in sponsorships and you can come on down to the House (a groovy eclectic place on Capitol Hill), chow for free, and choose from more than 30 different workshops taught at Seattle's Richard Hugo House. Open mics and wrap session included!
It's a great chance to mix with area writers, sample the literary finery at the House, and generate some terrific new writing.
My class will happen during the morning shift of hour-long workshops:
The magical realist method for turning lead into gold (and back
One of the key markers of magical realism is the peaceful coexistence of
the magical with the mundane. Using insights from magical realism, we'll create
fictive situations, both ordinary and extraordinary, then rewrite them as their
opposites. This workshop's all about stretching our own writerly perceptions.
Great for writers of all forms.
I would love to see you there, so if you do come, please introduce yourself if you get the chance. I'll be there at the door signing in participants and helping throughout the day as well.
It's a really fun event and all the money collected goes to a really important literary cause. Come for a couple of hours or stay for the day: your choice. Registration begins at 9:30; classes start at 10am sharp!
