All Levels | “Atop the snow-capped mountain, skull in hand … destroying the world with his indifference.” Shiva, the Hindu god of destruction, has fascinated generations of writers because he straddles so many divides — ascetic and householder, spiritualist and materialist, preserver and destroyer. In this multi-genre, part-generative, part-analytical class, we’ll turn to key texts and episodes from the mythology of this fascinating god, and use them to fuel our own burning pieces. No prior knowledge required — but come ready to engage and to write!
