ALTERNATIVE APPROACHES: FICTION INTENSIVE In this three-hour intensive we will read and discuss short experimental works that operate outside the conventions of mainstream fiction. These will serve as prompts for you to write in session. Volunteers will share results for workshop critique. Participants are welcome to bring their own material to share and discuss. All are welcome, from beginners to experienced writers. Get up and do that writing you keep putting off! 

THE INSTRUCTOR Jade Sharma is the author of Problems, which the New York Times called “[a] novel about a heroin addict [that] shouldn’t be this much fun to read.” She has reviewed for the New York Times Book Review, and her work has appeared in Lit Hub, The Evergreen, and Your Unspeakable Voice. Sharma is also a celebrated teacher. One former student writes, “To have Jade Sharma as a writing teacher is a unique experience. Imagine a friend who never judges you and who has your back and who is in close communication with you. That’s Jade.”
