Joins us for How To Forget How to Write Fiction, a bilingual writers’ workshop with Chilean novelist, poet and short story writer Alejandro Zambra.
Due to the limited capacity of this free workshop (12 participants), registration is by application only. Participants must be bilingual English-Spanish, as the workshop will be conducted in both languages. Deadline to apply and submit text is Sept. 18. Selected participants will be notified by Sept. 22.
This program is organized with generous support from The Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation.
Alejandro Zambra is one of the most important writers working in any language today. Named “the most talked-about writer to come out of Chile since Bolaño” (New York Times Book Review), Zambra has published poetry and five novels: Multiple Choice, Bonsai, The Private Lives of Trees, Ways of Going Home and My Documents, which have been translated into more than ten languages. His stories have appeared in the New Yorker, the Paris Review, Harper’s, Tin House, and McSweeney’s, among others. In 2010, he was named one of Granta’s Best Young Spanish-Language Novelists.
