Using Fabulism in Nonfiction & Memoir

All Levels | Fabulism is often the domain of fiction. Yet, fantastical descriptions can aid the reader’s imagination and extend metaphor for the sake of understanding. So why not use the fantastical in nonfiction? Particularly in memoir, where writers seek to make meaning of experiences rather than just delivering facts, getting otherworldly can be helpful. This workshop will explore examples of fabulism in nonfiction and discuss both the gifts and limitations of this technique. We’ll also write together, leaving you with multiple tools to prompt further explorations on your own.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
