Coming of Out of the Shell: On the Hermit Crab Essay 

with Hasanthika Sirisena

November 4th from 1PM to 3PM ET via Zoom

In this generative workshop we'll consider essays that incorporate found forms: a crossword puzzle, a medical history, a recipe. Hermit crab essays are an increasingly popular form that allows the essayist to play, to search, to imbue essays with layers of meaning. We’ll take a look at some hermit crab essays, discuss the opportunities, and the limits, of incorporating found forms, and we’ll practice the form through short generative prompts.  

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
