Anna Genevieve Winham's prose workshop focuses on borders and their transgressions. She's interested in what contradictions and creations arise at the crossroads, in the liminal space, and in the borderlands. Drawing from Chicana theory, gender theory, and nationalism studies, Anna applies the notions of boundary and subversion to fiction and language. Participants will read selections from John Gardner's, Virginia Woolf's, and James Woods's views on fiction as well as readings of so-called confessional works, auto/biography, historical fiction, and speculative diaries in order to explore the fertility of the the no (wo)man's land between truth, lies, and fiction. 

Fortnightly over the course of eight weeks, participants will discuss the readings provided and how they might apply these concepts to their own works. On the alternate fortnights, participants will workshop up to 3000 words of original prose. These pieces can be flash, micro, experimental, prose-poetry or other types of prose. The length restriction is intended to focus the attention and manage the time of all participants. Participants will hone the same piece or set of pieces over the course of the workshop. You may bring a work that you have already begun to the table, or you may begin a new piece over the first week of the workshop. 

In your application please include work samples (totaling <3000 words) as well as a short description (<500 words) about why you want to participate in this workshop. 

  • There are no financial costs associated with the application or the workshop. 
  • We are only accepting applications for prose workshops at this time. 
  • All workshops are conducted virtually and will be held on Mondays at 7:30p EST beginning on November 9th.
  • Workshop will consist of 3-4 participants.
  • Discussion week meetings will last roughly 1 hour, while workshop week meetings will last 1.5 - 2 hours, depending on the number of participants. 
  • The deadline to apply is October 30th.
