Writing Our Obsessions [Carolyne Wright]
All Levels. Our writing is inspired, in part, by our obsessions—those images, memories and concerns we keep spinning in our heads. We will explore ways modern and contemporary poets and writers effectively write their obsessions, considering the relationship of form and content, paying attention to rhetorical and experimental devices (often unconsciously chosen): repetition, recursion, ranting, listing, among others. We will write the stories we find ourselves repeating, and explore the many options available to us in narrative voice and storytelling.
