Aleksandar Hemon on Writing for 'Sense8' in 'The New Yorker'
Columbia’s Distinguished Writer-in-Residence Aleksandar Hemon published “The Transformative Experience of Writing for Sense8”in The New Yorker on September 27.
Hemon, a MacArthur Fellow who frequently publishes in the magazine, describes the experience of writing for the second season of the television series. “Writing is a means of interaction with the world, and therefore it changes the writer,” he says. “If it doesn’t, it contains no discovery and merely reproduces the already known and familiar. Writing, I believe, should be a matter not of execution but of transformation.” Read the full essay at The New Yorker.
