Look for this workshop
next season!

It’s often difficult to render even our most interesting real-life experiences in unique ways. Emily Dickinson gave the best advice: “Tell all the truth, but tell it slant.” Come talk about how to mine, re-imagine, and re-invent autobiography into original fiction. We’ll (possibly) discuss human-animal transformations, unorthodox angels and ghosts, among others.

Kodi Scheer teaches writing at the University of Michigan, where she earned her MFA. She was awarded the Dzanc Prize for Excellence in Literary Fiction and Community Service. As a recent fellow of the Sozopol Fiction Seminars, she traveled to Bulgaria to engage with an international community of writers, translators, and readers. Her stories have appeared or are forthcoming in The Chicago Tribune, The Iowa Review, The Florida Review, Quarterly West, and Bellevue Literary Review. She also serves as writer-in-residence for the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center.
