Sign up for Our One Day MAKING FICTION Craft Session

A notebook is “this strange place where the unwritten thrives because of the written,” writes anthropologist Michael Taussig. “The notebook is actually an extension of oneself, if not more than oneself, like an entirely new organ alongside one’s heart and brain. … What this new organ does is incorporate other worlds into one’s own.” Making Fiction is a chance to spend a day exploring different ways of tracking daily experience (the notebook, the journal, the fieldworker’s diary, the sketchbook, the lost notebook, the collection, the archive, the catalog…) and incorporating new material into the worlds we’re creating. We’ll look at notebooks and note-taking techniques of artists like Le Corbusier, Tavi Gevinson, and Joan Didion. Anyone interested in observing and investigating experience is welcome — this class is not exclusively for writers.
