Flash Fiction with Venita Blackburn

The purpose of all written stories is simple: they must cull the core of humanity in ways other mediums cannot. Language is a living mirror that requires the musculature of imagination to sustain the image. Short-short stories aim to reach the emotional and thematic depths of our species under extreme conditions: compression. This course will explore classic and contemporary flash fiction and engage in the techniques through exercise and discussion.

'Get Out' Film and Discussion

Join us for a screening of the surprise cinematic sensation of 2017, “Get Out.” This film blends elements of the horror genre with a biting critique of the state of racial discourse and politics in American culture. Equal parts gripping thriller and provocative commentary, "Get Out" asks viewers to question what they "know" about the world, evaluate their own worldview and examine social injustices.

A panel discussion and Q&A with the audience will explore the central themes, how and why it became a smash hit, and what it means for us now and moving forward.
