dc.description.abstractExhibit highlighting the final projects of students in the creative writing capstone class: Hybrid Forms. Genres dictate the shape, sound, and appearance of our information. And, by setting parameters, defining boundaries, and establishing limitations, they tell our words what to do. Perhaps this is why there is such a long and lauded history of creative writers dismantling these conventions, or replicating the characteristics of one genre within another, so as to make something new. If, as Walter Benjamin famously said, “all great works of literature either dissolve or explode their genres,” then it follows that creative writers would do well to learn the basics about how such things might be created. As a means to this end, Hybrid Forms explores elements of the history and practice of a variety of cross-genre forms, including prose poems, flash fiction, the lyric essay, erasures, collage, and other texts that combine strategies, forms and gestures of prose (fiction, nonfiction, etc.) with those of poetry. Students will try their hand at writing in their choices of hybrid forms, and will engage in a number of experiments that will involve the fruitful collision of literary genres. 2017/05/03 - 2017/05/15en_US
