Working Together: How Writers Collaborate
1-Day Generative Workshop
Date: Saturday, April 29 *In Person at LML
Time: 11 am - 4 pm (w/one-hour lunch break)
Instructor: Maw Shein Win
In this lively one-day workshop, we will explore ways of writing in community. We will practice a variety of techniques, including paired and group collaborations, experiments, games, and improvisations that will enliven and invigorate your writing practice.
This is a multi-genre class, so a multitude of interdisciplinary prompts, music, film/video, visual art, and photography will be presented in a way that will hopefully inspire and generate new work. This class is perfect for writers who wish to expand their poetry and prose using inventive and collaborative methods.
*COVID Policies for in person classes at LML:
1. Masks are recommended but not required.
2. COVID vaccinations are required. (We are no longer asking for record of vaccination and will now operate on an honor's system.)
