Dare-Push-Play on the Page
with Jennifer Lang

“I hear the word “experimental” and reach for my revolver. I don’t consider myself an experimental writer because experimental writing is about the experiment, and that doesn’t interest me.” —Steve Erickson
In this workshop, we’re going to do what we’ve never done before: shake up our prose. We’re going to use our Israeli-inspired chutzpa to dare, to push, to play until we see new lightbulbs and sense interesting shifts. We’ll read hybrids and hermit-crab essays to help us loosen up and become more nimble-minded on the page.
This is a generative workshop. Open to all genres, all levels.
Details: 420nis if you register by January 10 and 480nis subsequently; includes light snacks and refreshments.
