Description

This workshop explores fiction as an experiential reproduction of truth. Origin is both the complex reasons and histories we bring to our writing and the techniques we employ to orient our readers at the start of the stories we tell. LIMINAL literally means threshold and is the in-between space. We will turn the personal origin, in all of its complexities, into experiential, experimental fiction through the exploration of liminal spaces.
~Focus on creating new writing ~ Open to all levels ~
