What Do We Have in Our Pockets?
This generative one-day workshop is all about inventory. Things, stuff, items. Creating a world on the page through objects and learning the power of ordinary items to evoke passions, fears, dreams, and all manner of big ideas. The handheld leading us to the profound. We’ll begin our exploration with Etgar Keret’s short story “What Do We Have in Our Pockets?” and students can expect to come away with a new short story of their own. No prior writing experience necessary!
