Talk Story: Master Narratives



TALK STORY: MASTER NARRATIVES will explore reading and writing through the lens of master narratives. A Master Narrative is a dominant story/or stories that control(s) culture. Master Narratives are widely accepted as an intractable history, truth, ideology to explain and maintain the status quo. Participants examine Master Narratives in writing and discover the parallels, intersections, and ways we reinforce/rebel when confronted with these stories. Each month will feature a book and a visit with a guest author. There is optional in-class writing and sharing to encourage creative process and voice. 

Subscriptions are a flexible way for you to participate in almost any combination of TALK STORY sessions below. Note that your subscription officially starts at the beginning of the month, no matter when you sign up.
