Ironically, mashing -- compression, constraint, and juxtaposition -- can be freeing! From using particular words or letters or doing 10 minute free-writes to pouring a lot of material into a tiny container, juxtapositions may include turning a meditation on mortality into a shopping list, a resignation letter into an obituary, an essay on loneliness into a Help Wanted Ad, or an elegy into a how-to manual. The payoff may be a warm-up, a piece worthy of publication, or both!
One session. Registration – $85
