Prose Workshop: Narrative Practices

In this workshop, we read contemporary writers whose work subverts narrative practices of different kinds. We examine a progression of works that engage creative process on a continuum from the sentence to the event, as models and prompts for our own narratives. What happens to prose writing when we engage narrative theory? What kinds of actions might be foregrounded, complicated, or transformed? How do we write something new?
