Writing with Woolf

Sat, 10 Jun, 2017 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Virginia Woolf maintained that the writer’s job was to represent life and the experience of living, whether the medium was fiction or nonfiction. Out of the fearless, flowing fabric of observation and feeling, Woolf composed short stories, literary criticism, novels, biography, and memoir which altered the bounds of these genres. To her view, the tools for capturing “what we call life or spirit, truth or reality” evolved with language, social change, psychology, and perception. Many of her methods have yet to be surpassed. This one-day workshop will introduce writers to a number of Woolf’s lyrical shorter works, and use her experiments in point-of-view, time, consciousness, and character to embolden participants in their own explorations of form. In-class exercises will be designed to inspire. All writers have something to gain be trying on voices, subjects, and musings they’ve never dared before.
