Fooling Ourselves (into Writing) [Jac Jemc]
Feeling stumped or stagnant? Have an idea, but don’t know where to start? Not a “writing from ideas” kind of writer? We’ll explore ways of tricking ourselves into writing. We’ll create language banks, dig up gluts of memory, and then hunt for the narrative hiding in these resources. We’ll learn from writers such as Diane Williams, Harry Mathews, Gary Lutz, and Lynda Barry, all of whom have developed unique methods of generating work and mimic these efforts at spinning raw material into stories.
