About the Event

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 is the author of the novel, Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore, and his work has appeared in The New York Times, The Daily Beast, LitHub and elsewhere. He lives in Anacortes, where he is teaching online, presenting for the Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau, and working on a crime novel set in Soap Lake.
