Fiction? Poetry? Creative non-fiction? What form should I use in telling my story? These are questions every writer must ask. In this workshop participants will write a single story in three different genres: fiction, creative non-fiction, and poetry; and then, edit and weave what they have written in workshop into a single story making use of all three genres. Such exercises around genre switching will help each writer find the right frame for their story. By learning how to include multiple genres in a single story, each writer will also develop vocabulary, tone, and point of view, all necessary elements of the craft.

To prepare for the workshop, the author suggests that you read from her work: Miko Kings: An Indian Baseball Novel, or Choctalking On Other Realties. Both books are layered with multi-genres.
