A contemporary movement with very old roots, the new fabulists combine the mythic and the domestic to bewildering and beautiful effect. We’ll read short stories by writers like Kevin Brockmeier and Aimee Bender to see how they manage to make the unreal real, and use those stories as prompts to create work, applying what we learn to a new piece of writing every week. We will then discuss this new work.
