Letters To A Known Future: Writing From The World We Leave


This is a six week workshop for writers and storytellers. You may join us in NEW ORLEANS at The Dragonfly Poetry & Ritual Space or REMOTELY from all around the globe:

Letters To A Known Future:
Writing From The World We Leave

As history lays dying, what the future will hold rests squarely in our palms. We need stories that explore possibilities, both personal and collective, we need stories that speak healing into the old world, and constructive memory into the future.

We need the stories. All of them. Now.

This workshop is ideal for experimental fiction, blasphemous theory creation, collage writing, lyric making, broken poetry, and oral storytelling.

Bring your stray words and story pieces, bring your barely surfacing dreams and nightmares, bring your wants and your fears, but most importantly: bring a pen.

This is a writing intensive workshop. If you are looking to generate raw material or unearth new inspirations, this is the perfect workshop for you.

There will be an opportunity to read or perform work, but will not be expected.

(An essay from each: Adrienne Maree Brown, Donna Haraway, Douglas Rushkoff)
