ORAL HISTORY AND WRITING

Instructor: Suzanne Snider
Fee: $695 ($660 for OHSS/OHWS Alumni)
Level: All are welcome. More info, here
In this writing and oral history workshop, students experiment with a range of literary forms that use oral history as both source material and text.
Monologues, oral narratives, documentary theater, and oral tone poetry are among the traditions already defined at the intersection of writing and oral history. We'll explore these known traditions (and invent our own) alongside more obscure genres through discussions, writing exercises, screenings, select reading, and optional workshop time. We'll be joined by guest artists/instructors. Read more, here.
Note: Tuition includes an OHWS workshop e-reader, OHWS workbook, an extended trial/purchase discount from Hindenburg Systems editing software, and two group meals
