The Writer’s Studio is a free workshop series open to all students from all majors. Come study the art of writing in intensive, fun, hands-on workshops with dynamic faculty from the Creative Writing program, the Stanford Storytelling Project, and others. You’ll leave with an expanded understanding of what your writing can do.
In this workshop, we will use games and techniques of improvisation to spark insight about character, dialogue, and plot. Our goals will be to discover sources of creativity through joy and play, rather than focus and design. Participants will have the opportunity to meet and work with others, through paired and small-group activities designed to propel your writing.
Shannon Pufahl is the author of the novel On Swift Horses. Her essays have appeared in The Paris Review, The New York Review of Books, and elsewhere. She is a Jones Lecturer at Stanford, where she teaches courses in speculative fiction, queer narrative, and femininity.
