Money in Writing

All Levels | We will explore how we write and think about money through readings of relevant texts and, ultimately, the production of our own money-related texts in workshop. The amount of money a person possessed was clearly stated in the 19th century novels of Jane Austen and Anthony Trollope. Money told the reader what a character could do, where they could go, who they could love. But, as Thomas Piketty explained, money disappeared from Western writing. This is very strange because, as the Wu-Tang Clan made very clear in the 1990s, cash rules everything around us. Our aim is to bring money back into your writing.
