last year we had so much fun hosting our ‘baseball lit’ workshop, we thought we’d expand it even further. welcome to the wide world of sports lit. this generative 5-week workshop will focus on all things sports and literature. classes will begin with sports highlights and a writing prompt, and each week will focus on a different sport—baseball, basketball, soccer, boxing, and tennis. we’ll also read essays and stories by celebrated authors such as emily nemens, john edgar wideman, colin barrett, katherine hill, david foster wallace, laura van den berg and others, and workshop your own sports-themed work (whether fiction, non-fiction, poetry). it’s going to be a home run / slam dunk / touchdown / [insert your own sports metaphor] of a time.
