Contradictory Sways: Reading and Writing through Harryette Mullen: A Writing Workshop with Hoa Nguyen

September 23

In this workshop (which runs Sundays from September 9 to December 9, except October 7, 21 and December 2), participants in person and online read and write through the works of Harryette Mullen: Recyclopedia, Sleeping with the Dictionary and a book interviews. These books will generate conversation and strategies for the writing we enact. Expect to generate many poems.

Participants spend the first hour reading poems (aloud) and another hour writing. The writing portion takes the form of starting points and prompts drawn from the poems as well as those of instructor Hoa Nguyen’s own design. Weekly written materials include introductory and contextualizing commentary, supplemental materials, and inventive writing prompts.
