Ideal for individual or classroom use, Architectures of Possibility theorizes and questions the often unconscious assumptions behind such traditional writing gestures as temporality, scene, and characterization; offers various suggestions for generating writing that resists, rethinks, and/or expands the very notion of narrativity; visits a number of important concerns/trends/obsessions in current writing (both on the page and off); discusses marketplace (ir)realities; hones critical reading and manuscript editing capabilities; and strengthens problem-solving muscles from brainstorming to literary activism.Lance Olsen is author of more than 20 books, including the novels Theories of Forgetting, Calendar of Regrets, and Nietzsche's Kisses. His short stories, essays, poems, and reviews have appeared in hundreds of journals and anthologies. He serves as chair of FC2's Board of Directors and teaches experimental narrative theory and practice at the University of Utah.
