February WordLab - Carl Corder

Greetings, Word Scientists!

With February almost here, it's time to get back into our normal swing of things with our first traditional WordLab of the year. For this month's workshop, we'll be welcoming a fellow Hoosier, Carl Corder, to offer up a reading and lead us in our experiment. Here's a bit about Carl:

Carl Corder was raised in Clermont, Indiana and earned a BA in English from the University of Indianapolis. He earned his MFA in Fiction at the University of Montana where he taught Composition and Fiction, acted as fiction editor for Cutbank Literary Magazine, and now serves as the Writing Assessment Project Coordinator. Keeping close ties with Indianapolis, he is also a project writer for Metonymy Media.

Carl is currently at work on a connected series of short stories based in and around the limestone quarries of southern Indiana, where men and women spend their lives digging into the stone beneath, and feral children watch from the mouths of forgotten caves.

Since Carl is still a resident of Montana, we'll be having our first-ever SUPER FUTURISTIC DIGITAL WORDLAB EXTRAVAGANZA, which means Carl will be calling in via Google Hangouts to lead us via voice call.

Bring your friends, bring your pens, bring a pad of paper. It's going to be a WordLab to remember!

    Thanks for the great workshop, everybody! Barring a few skips, our remote author was really great, and I think he inspired some terrific writing from all of us. Looking forward to next month!

    Fun event! Very much enjoyed Carl as he led from afar, even through some data interruptions. Loved his reading, and the triggering image exercise was inspiring. The small group size allowed everyone the chance to read their results to the group and get feedback, and in Dave's case, a good laugh. Ryan did a most excellent job getting us set and ready to go while also providing insights on the readings. Am looking forward to the next event and for possibilities with out-of-area presenters.

      Hi Grace! Looking forward to meeting you. All you need to bring with you is a notepad and pen (or a computer, or anything in the world you want to write on). Look for updates on the event soon for more details!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
