About the Workshop

This workshop will use prompts to help you generate new writing that can be expanded on later. Please have paper and pen handy, as well as 1–2 pages of something you have already written (need not be polished and can be any form). You can bring something written by someone else if you prefer. The language in this writing will be used as raw material for some of the exercises.
