Hybrid: Crafting, Publishing & Promoting Hybrid Work

Hybrid writing is the study of and creation of works with a structural and aesthetic emphasis on crossing boundaries: redaction, lyric essay, prose poetry, intermedia and more. Join us and push beyond the parameters and into the edges of literary while learning which editors and venues are looking for hybrid works.

Writing Goals

  • To identify and read exemplary works of hybrid works as a foundational study to creating your own;
  • To generate new drafts of work with a focus on hybrid;
  • To provide critical feedback on work so you can revise and make it as strong as it can be;
  • To help you further strengthen your knowledge of form and to provide you with the environment to better understand your individual voice so you can apply this to future works;
  • To help you learn and improve on the techniques of writing and self-editing so that you are aware of your preferred forms and boundaries and be able to consider how you might push your preferred forms into your best craft.
