Announcing a new Foundry reading series Master Class! On September 9th, Jac Jemc will teach “Fooling Ourselves (Into Writing),” a two hour workshop and master class.
Feeling stumped or stagnant? Have an idea, but don’t know where to start? Not a “writing from ideas” kind of writer? In this workshop we’ll explore ways of tricking ourselves into writing. We’ll create language banks, dig up gluts of memory, and then hunt for the narrative hiding in these resources. We’ll also look at writers who have developed unique methods of generating work and mimic these efforts at spinning raw material into stories.
Saturday, September 9th
