In this series, New York Times bestselling author David Shields will explain, explore, and discuss how he has written more than twenty books in forty years—all while being constitutionally incapable of writing or reading a linear narrative. In each session, David will examine a”work-around”: Brevity, Journal, Collage, Remix, Photo/Film, Collaboration. Students will have ample time to ask questions. To explore the topics further, you can also take the Workshop with David.
