This course consists of several workshop-style classes, each with a different theme, wherein students will develop storytelling skills through exploratory assignments and open discussion. The instructors would like to explicitly welcome and encourage QUILTBAG/queer/gender non-conforming students to attend. Themes will include short-form memoir, writing for artists/drawing for writers, reading and writing copy, and more! Activities will include zine/chatbook-making, short story creation, and group storytelling, among others. Love of narrative, writing and/or visual art recommended. All classes will be taught in order to include both visual and text-based responses to assignments/questions. There will be an element of speaking to and with the class, so please be interested in discussion.
