MoonLit--Your Brain is Smarter than You: Improvisation & Intuition in Writing

Join us at Bird in Hand for the latest MoonLit workshop!

Much of learning to be a writer is learning about product: What makes an effective ending for a poem? What's the classic structure of a story? Who is my audience? How do I get published? Important questions, yes, but they lead writers away from what is central to the process of art making—intuition. Whether you're a beginner, an MFA grad, or a lifelong author, you must consistently rethink, rearrange, remix, and and reconnect with your process. This workshop will provide generative exercises that explore improvisation and trusting your linguistic impulses. In addition to brief discussions of creativity theory and craft essays by renown writers, this workshop will provide tools and techniques to help participants go with their gut, make a mess more freely, and quiet the left brain so the right can lead to places unknown.

About the Instructor: Tyler Barton is a cofounder and event programmer for FEAR NO LIT, the literary organization responsible for the Submerging Writer Fellowship. He is the author of The Quiet Part Loud, a collection of flash fiction, which won the Turnbuckle Chapbook Contest and was published this year by Split Lip Press. Find his fiction in The Iowa Review, Kenyon Review, Cincinnati Review, Gulf Coast, and elsewhere. Find him online at tsbarton.com or @goftyler.
