WORKSHOP: Instructions for a Journey

  • The Arts House Singapore (map)

Miriam Bird Greenberg leads a short, collaborative workshop investigating the archetypal journey, whose echoes are deeply embedded in culture, from fairytales to the intimate stories of economic migrants in Hong Kong and American hobos alike.

Writer-participants will read selections from journey texts both mythic and mundane, including The Descent of Alette by by Alice Notley, The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien and My Life in the Bush of Ghosts by Amos Tutuola, then collaborate to produce a guidebook to the afterlife.
