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, led by Jac Jemc, an award-winning author who has taught English and Creative Writing at many area universities, will 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.
