A summary of the workshop held on Saturday, March 12th, plus some of the output published below
In this workshop, William went over the concept of Stream of Consciousness. He emphasized the lack of traditional structure in Stream of Consciousness writing, and the wondering and wandering nature of the style. The writers saw examples from literature, including Virginia Woolf and T.S. Eliot. As a mini-writing challenge, William played a clip from a silent French film and asked the writers to imagine a stream-of-consciousness from the perspective of the woman in the film.
The Challenge: Let the thoughts of your character run freely. Focus on sights, thoughts, feelings, sounds.
