Let's Get Weird: Introduction to Experimental Writing

As writers, we are often encouraged to push our creative limits and strive for originality. One way we can do that is examine some of the ways that writers use experimentation to innovate and redefine this thing called Story--to make the familiar unfamiliar and, in the meantime, to energize our process.

In this generative, participatory workshop, we will look at (and play with) some approaches that writers use to upend traditional notions of Story, such as structure, form, and language. Plan to get weird.

Matthew Sullivan’s novel, Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore, won the 2018 Colorado Book Award and was an IndieNext pick, a Barnes & Noble Discover pick, and a GoodReads Choice Awards finalist. His writing has appeared in Sou'Wester, Fugue, The Spokesman Review, Spark, The New York Times, The Daily Beast, LitHub and many other places. He is currently part of the Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau and travels the state to present on the evolution of the mystery genre. In 2019, he relocated from central Washington to Anacortes, where he is teaching online and writing a crime novel set in Soap Lake.

You can learn more about Matt on his website. Please visit him at: https://www.matthewjsullivan.com/

A few scholarships are available. Please email Melissa, the workshop organizer, at write2unpack@gmail.com to request. Please indicate your city and state.
