Type/Writing: Experiments in Creative Nonfiction & Zinecraft with Melissa Favara
Awaken your muse on a beautiful vintage manual typewriter! This workshop will consist of focused writing time working with short memoir and creative nonfiction prompts, producing small pieces that could be expanded on later. Participants will be provided with writing prompts and their own vintage manual typewriter to use for the writing process, feedback sessions, and materials and guidance for creating one-of-a-kind artifacts (zines) of their favorite creative writing pieces from the session.
Melissa Favara writes creative nonfiction, poetry, and nonfiction, teaches writing and literature at Clark College, collects typewriters, and curates the 1,000 Words reading series. She is a member of the board of directors of the Independent Publishing Resource Center, writes the zine teen sleuth, and seeks every opportunity to promote reading, writing, and the printed word. Her work has appeared in street roots, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, and elsewhere.
