Workshop—Téa Obreht: Myth and Magic
In this workshop, Téa Obreht will focus on the mythic traditions in storytelling and explore how specific narrative predilections shape our instincts and responses to fiction. We will discuss the incorporation of the fantastical into contemporary literature, with an emphasis on living landscape, and the role of setting as a significant character in modern mythic narrative.
