2021 Tin House Virtual Craft Intensive: Character in Scene, with Kim Fu

*Saturday is sold out, join waitlist by emailing workshop@gmail.com or purchase Sunday below* The best fictional characters, like real people, can seldom be boiled down to a simple list of traits and adjectives. They exist in communities and relationships, are borne from and generate conflict, and are inseparable from the story being told. They might draw from the writer’s personal knowledge and experiences, while blossoming into someone wholly different and new. Who they are dictates what they do, but what they do also tells us who they are. In this class, we will practice building story and character in tandem, and writing key scenes that reveal a character to the reader—and to the writer. Participants will leave with new writing: new ways to understand and…

Cirro-numinous Salon: The Lens

This event combines the elements of lecture, discussion, and generative workshop in order to create an inclusive space for creative discovery. Poets Natalie Jane Edson and Eva Bertoglio have crafted this series as a way to explore the components of craft, embodiment, and perception and asking: “how do these interrelated undertakings interact with a holistic creative practice?” In this particular salon, we will explicate the different ways of entering into poems through metaphors of the visual. When we look through a glass lens, we establish a focal point and emphasize certain elements of landscape, thereby enacting a transformation on what we see. How can we utilize this technology to aid in the creation of illusion and artful composition within our own work? The event will…

2021 Tin House Virtual Craft Intensive: You Can Do Anything With Words and Images, with Courtney Cook

In the words of Harvey Pekar, from which this course draws its name, “Comics are just words and images.

Through examining graphic narratives by creators such as Kristen Radtke, Yumi Sakugawa, Kevin Huizenga, Allie Brosh, and Theresa Wong, and participating in a series of generative…
