EARLY BIRD SPECIAL: $199 BY DEC 1ST for all 6 classes!

Class size is limited to 10 people, and the Early Bird tickets tend to sell out quickly.

In this six week workshop, we will read and write the short form. We will examine popular non-fiction forms such as the hermit crab, braided essay, and lyric essay. We will also read flash fiction and poetry with all of our senses attuned to defamiliarization, whether that be surrealism, magical realism, the uncanny, or the fantastic. This class is suited for all genres and levels.

Each class will include discussion of published pieces, and generative creative writing exercises. Dr. Erica Anzalone will offer positive feedback in our supportive community. In addition, students will have the opportunity to workshop at least one piece.

Expect to be inspired and generate new work, as well as revise previously written work. The final class will include a discussion on publishing. Past participants have gone on to publish their work, win awards, and attend top MFA programs.

There is one scholarship available for BIPOC. Please email me at anzalone.erica@gmail.com for an application by 12/1, or if you have any questions.

6 Sundays, 1/8-2/12, noon EST-2pm EST on Zoom

Dr. Erica Anzalone’s Bio

Erica Anzalone is a writer and educator with over sixteen years of teaching experience at the college level. Her book Samsara was the winner of the 2011 Noemi Press Poetry Prize. In Samsara, she looks through a spiritual-historical lens at art, war, feminism, religion, and the body in extremis. She holds an MFA in poetry from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop at the University of Iowa and a doctorate in English from the University of Nevada at Las Vegas, where she was awarded a Schaeffer fellowship. Her work has appeared in The Colorado Review, Hotel Amerika, Cream City Review, Juked, Pangyrus, baldhip, Coconut, Denver Quarterly, The Literary Review, Greatcoat, Konundrum Engine Literary Review, Mary, The Offending Adam, Pleiades, Sentence, UCity Review, and elsewhere. Her second poetry manuscript explores the surrealism and simulacra of Las Vegas, and offers both a critique and celebration of American excess.
