"The Creative Archive: Found Materials and Hybrid Writing," NeMLA 2015, Apr 30 - May 3, 2015, Toronto
How do writers make creative use of archives? How do such encounters occasion new modes and genres of storytelling? What happens when archival materials become the expression of the writing itself? This session seeks cross-genre writers working with archival materials (found, family, public) to create multimedia texts. In this 'show-and-tell' session, presenters are invited to share projects and reflect on questions of process and method.
