Cullman Center Institute for Teachers: Weird Love Stories: A Creative Writing Workshop
CHRIS ADRIAN, Instructor
This workshop will examine the unconventional language used in a number of stories, including short fiction by Donald Barthelme and Judy Budnitz, to create a drama of romantic attachment that resists and overcomes cliché. Participants will also engage in a writing exercise that incorporates some of these elements to produce an affecting piece of writing about love.
Chris Adrian is the author of three novels – The Great Night, Gob's Grief, and The Children's Hospital – and a collection of stories, A Better Angel. His short fiction has appeared in The New Yorker, Esquire, The Paris Review, and other publications. Adrian is a practicing pediatric oncologist and holds a divinity degree from Harvard.
