Nona Caspers - Teaching
In most of my courses we look closely at published texts to absorb strategies and orchestration possibilities—and to be inspired.  In workshop courses we look closely at student works-in-progress. I emphasize reading for the consciousness of the material and what is on the page—ideas, tensions, dynamics, moments, etc that are strong and in motion.  From this place we offer developmental feedback that stirs up the writer's imagination in concrete ways.  I'm interested in the material in front of us and equally interested in how that material and our practice can encourage us to become more generous thinkers and creators.
