What is time travel, really? We can use a machine or walk through a secret door. Take a pill or fall asleep and wake up in the future. But when we talk about magic machines and slipstreams and Rip Van Winkle, we are also talking about memory, chronology, and narrative. In this workshop, we will approach time travel as a way of understanding “the Fourth Dimension” in fiction. Readings will range from the speculative to the strange, to the realism of timelines, flashbacks, and shifts in perspective.


All Levels
Capacity: 12

This workshop will take place online via Zoom. Participants will receive instructions for access prior to the first session.
