Where do you live? Where are you from? In what world – real or imaginary – does your writing live? In this interactive, cross-genre workshop appropriate for both beginning and advanced writers, students will do close readings and exercises to help them ground their work in richly drawn settings. The workshop will introduce students to a combination of literary and ethnographic techniques designed to help them pay closer attention to the world they move through, or the one they imagine.
