COST: $200




noun: kaleidoscope

  1. a toy consisting of a tube containing mirrors and pieces of colored glass or paper, whose reflections produce changing patterns that are visible through an eyehole when the tube is rotated.

  2. a constantly changing pattern or sequence of objects or elements.

What might it mean to write a narrative kaleidoscope, writing made from pieces that change form, color, tone, and meaning when rotated? How might we work with small fragments of text or words and create a changing pattern that creates endless gestalt? In this four week intensive we will create narrative kaleidoscopes by putting ourselves through a collaborative artistic process:

  • MAY 30 :: 6-9 pm ::  we’ll eyeball some beautiful examples for inspiration, generate definitions, and start writing.

  • JUNE 6 :: 6-9 pm :: we write together hard core and share ideas collaboratively

  • JUNE 13 :: 6-9 pm :: we micro feedback excerpts from drafts

  • JUNE 20 ::  6-9 pm :: we share finished works and discuss next steps
