Metaphor Dice [Taylor Mali]
All Levels | You may have grown up being told that a metaphor is a way of comparing two things, which is ultimately a misleading and inaccurate definition of what a metaphor is and why it is employed in every human culture on earth. It’s like saying an automobile is a way of burning fossil fuel. Metaphors are more like temporary figurative secret codes for saying one thing but meaning another. In this workshop, Taylor Mali will introduce participants to his invention, Metaphor Dice, an imaginative way to think and write more figuratively. It will be a prompt-driven, generative workshop with some critical feedback as time permits. No experience necessary!
