Four-Week Flash Hybrid Workshop

What is hybrid? A hybrid genre is a genre that blends themes and elements from two or more different genres. Some examples include Selah Ann Saterstrom’s “IDEAL SUGGESTIONS Essays in Divinatory Poetics,” Julia Madsen’s “The Boneyard, The Birth Manual, a Burial: Investigations Into the Heartland,” and Steven Dunn’s water & power (to name just a few).

In this four-week online workshop, we will be working together within the framework of writing exercises, craft articles, and writing examples as you produce a draft each week in the hybrid form. With your fellow students, we will workshop and support your writing with a weekly Zoom call to discuss, vent, laugh, and read your work out loud. You will also receive extensive editing suggestions from me on your work and additional one-on-one meetings are available as well. Once the workshop is over, you will leave with the beginning of a hybrid collection to continue to work on after gaining confidence and support during our workshop and meetings. Priority to BIPOC and LGBTQ writers.
