Ursula K. Le Guin once said that “anarchism is a necessary ideal.” She popularized anarchism in her work, and vaulted the concept of anarchism from the cultural ghetto into the mainstream of intellectual discourse. In this gathering, we’ll talk about what it means to dissemble social norms, structures, and expectations in fiction. We’ll explore the writer’s power and responsibility to dismantle the status quo in fiction. Then we’ll write in the space we’ve created between chaos and order. Participants leave with a better understanding about the social obligation of fiction, how to bank and spend emotional currency with the reader, and how to make a contract with the reader on the first few pages of a novel. People come to Ford’s workshops as writers and leave as storytellers.
