One Day Writing Workshop: Collective Writing: An Experiment in Audience

Reservation Dates: 
Thursday, December 20, 2018 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

collective writing: an experiment in audience

In this workshop we will playfully engage in collective writing experiments to explore the useful tensions with audience. Much of the workshop will be writing, but we will also be performing our writing, discussing our experiences, and coming up with follow up prompts.

Led by Visting Writer Laura Goldstein 

Cost: Sliding Scale $10-30.00


Bio: Laura Goldstein is the author of the full-length poetry collections loaded arc(2013) and awesome camera (2014) and numerous chapbooks. She earned her BA at the University of Pennsylvania, MA at Temple University, and MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Goldstein is influenced by Modernists such as Gertrude Stein as well as the postmodern avant-garde, and her work frequently engages performance. “I really value experience in the moment and how it can change you in ways you don’t realize,” she says in an interview with Laura Madeline Wiseman. “I also attempt to create that kind of nebulous space on the page and by provoking the more uncanny effects of language.” With Jennifer Karmin, Goldstein co-curates the Red Rover Reading Series in Chicago. She is a lecturer at Loyola University and lives in Chicago.
