Join Our 2023 “Innovative Fiction” Seminar!

One of Subversity‘s two inaugural ten-month seminars, “Innovative Fiction” meets monthly to deeply study a recent book by one of ten of the world’s finest fiction writers. (See complete schedule below.)

Facilitated by Big Other‘s editor, John Madera, each session of the seminar comprises two parts: a ninety minute-long discussion of a recently published book followed by an hour-long Q&A session with the author of the discussed book.

Each session also includes access to an online folder that includes a writing prompt inspired by the discussed book, as well as supplementary readings, videos, links, etc. All sessions will be recorded and will be available as an archive for patrons.

The sessions are exclusively available to Patreon supporters.

Here is the schedule:
