Work and precarity are central to a number of recent novels. In these books, work is not a matter of banality or boredom, but is instead a place of high stakes, high drama, and deep psychological pressure. The result is a collection of genre bending novels, ranging from Hilary Leichter’s Temporary to Raven Leilani’s Luster and Christine Smallwood’s The Life of the Mind. In this craft talk, we’ll look at some of these novels, as well as think about how to convey the texture of the workplace in fiction—from workplace behavior and language to hierarchy and power.

*This course will be presented in livestream format, rather than hybrid, so those participating virtually will not be visible or audible to those in person. The facilitator will do their best to repeat audience questions, and the moderator will forward questions from virtual participants to the facilitator whenever possible. Unfortunately, no recordings will be made of this event, so registrants will need to view it live, MDT.
