Episode 96: Nonviolence in the Creative Writing Workshop
(Joshua Folmar, Maxine Hong Kingston, Becca Lachman, Fred Marchant, Kim Stafford) Toxic critique often wounds writers. How might some principles of non-violent engagement transform the creative writing workshop? What happens when writers listen well? How can deeply receptive listening - to texts and to writers - kindle dialogue about new work? Despite diversity of perspectives, how do we seek common ground as writers helping writers? The panelists will explore these and related questions about how non-violent ethics can be profoundly practical in the creative writing workshop.
