Writing Group: Overflow with Aimee Goguen


"Trees bristle the ground with a vast quantity of flowered shafts raised up to the sun." -Georges Bataille, The Solar Anus

This workshop will be co-led by Aimee Goguen. We will be working with sentences we think are sexy: versions of the erotic like "when my face is flushed with blood, it becomes red and obscene" (Georges Bataille). Prepare to engage in passionate writing that is full of feeling even to the point of sensory overload.

The bi-monthly writing group takes inspiration from the imaginative spaces in Italo Calvino's Invisible Cities. Each session we write together and alone, with an element of group work led in partnership with different artists and writers.

No writing experience necessary, this is an open and inclusive co-creative venture!

Limited to 10 participants. $5 - Reserve your place here
