Is it meaningful to add -punk to a genre name or just a marketing maneuver? What do the tenets behind the punk music movement add to the various genres it’s influenced? Will there be additional -punks down the line and what might they look like? What are the tropes, pitfalls, and techniques of each subgenre — and what do they hold in common? In this workshop, we’ll define, discuss, and even do a few writing exercises aimed at deepening your understanding of what it means to write -punk fiction.
