Restructuring Truth

August 22 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm


We’ve moved online! All workshops will be conducted through Zoom, an interactive platform that allows you to participate in exercises and contribute to group conversation in your workshops. The day before your workshop you’ll receive an email with a link to Zoom for your workshop session. 

Member Price: $65
Deadline to Register: August 21, 5 pm
Instructor: Nina Wolpow

This special topic workshop will focus on surrealist short fiction by zeroing in on surrealism as a slight, often barely perceptible, change in every-day circumstances. Using a real news story, we will produce our own surrealist short story ideas by slightly augmenting the truth, and discuss the implications of doing so.

Suggested Readings

  • Leonora Carrington, “The Beloved”
  • Carmen Maria Machado, “The Husband Stitch”
  • excerpts from Kafka’s The Metamorphosis


Nina Wolpow is a writer in New York. She is pursuing her MFA in Creative Writing from Columbia University. Her nonfiction work has been published by Vox, Refinery29, BuzzFeed, Teen Vogue, Rolling Stone, and Bon Appétit.
