Writing Workshop: What Disability in Fairy Tale Can Teach Us (not to do)

March 18, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 3:00 pm

$45

What is the function of disability in literature? What is the impact of this on our understanding of disability? How can we write about bodies in a way that does not perpetuate these notions? In this workshop, we look at the use of a variety of bodies as metaphor, the ways this use can perpetuate physiognomy and disability tropes, and how we can instead write bodies with care and nuance. Following this lecture/discussion, participants will be guided through individual and group writing exercises that present strategies for generating surprising stories/plots through this examination of expected functions and metaphors. Please bring a lunch.
