Creative Writing Workshop with Mike Thorn

Wednesday, March 29, 3:00 pm
Innovation Hub, Research Commons, Harriet Irving Library

This one-hour workshop will address the concept of the Anthropocene, and the fraught relationships between human and nonhuman animals therein. It will also explore the difficulties and possibilities of creative writing within the climate emergency, with some references to the genre-coded opportunities endemic to horror fiction.

Participants will be invited to "free-write" reflections on life within this contemporary, ecologically tenuous moment.
