Flash Pets with Anika Carpenter
An online generative writing workshop
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Animal companions are variously; a comfort, a status symbol, an irreplaceable member of the family, a joy, the subject of thousands of TikTok videos, the trigger for irksome allergic reactions. In this workshop we'll look at pets in art, literature, film and on the internet. You'll be invited to share your own pet anecdotes as well as to respond to a series of pet-inspired writing prompts. There will be opportunities to share what you have written if you would like to.
