    Literary Collage: An Evolution Beyond Narrative Writing Workshop

    Is the novel dead? What can replace it or evolve beyond it in the twenty-first century? With acclaimed genre-bending, nonfiction writer and essayist David Shields, explore the anti-novel and collage. Create prose built from scraps and fragments, see what literary art forms emerge, and happily abandon any clear line between fiction and nonfiction.

    David Shields is the author of sixteen books, including War is Beautiful (2015); The Thing About Life Is That One Day You’ll Be Dead, a New York Times bestseller, and Reality Hunger: A Manifesto, a culmination of Shields’s life-long exploration of mass culture, nonfiction, genre-blur, and reality. His essays and stories have appeared in the New York Times Magazine, Harper’s Magazine, Salon, and Slate.
