This class will encourage writers to let go of control on the page, in order to make room for happy accidents. Introducing an element of happenstance into the drafting process can conjure a sense of unreality or disjunction, which allows writers to forge paths they might not have found by using conscious logic. These writing prompts will utilize a coin toss, a random image generator, bots, and dice to invite the muse in via happenstance. The class will also offer strategies for shaping free-written text into a cogent draft, so writers will leave with a sense of where to go next.
