The Hermit Crab Essay, Virtual (hosted by Indiana Writers Center), December 3, 2023 10:00-12:00
Playing with form can unlock new truths in content. Hermit crab essays purposefully use outside forms to artistic effect. For example, an essay might be a Law and Order script, a bibliography, or a crossword puzzle. This workshop will include examples and prompts, and writers will leave with the start of their very own hermit crab essay. Come as you are, pay what you can. Sign up here!
