geneseo almanacs, v. To say this story happened in this place at this time. To map the start of writing. To invite readers to navigate how and where stories begin. To write from chance encounter: a question, a trace memory of experience that sharpens when held up to attention.
The most recent of the Geneseo Almanacs originated in Jess Fenn’s Spring 2016 Foundations of Creative Writing class at SUNY Geneseo (TA Evan Goldstein).
The Geneseo Almanacs originated in Jess Fenn’s Fall 2015 Foundations of Creative Writing class at SUNY Geneseo (TA Marley DeRosia).
