This generative one-day workshop is all about learning how to create credible weirdness in fiction. How do we convince someone that the future we've envisioned is real, the alien planet exists, those bowling zombies really do have their own league, and vampires will be competing in the next Olympics? The truth is out there. Students can expect to come away with one new, very weird but entirely convincing, story. No experience needed!

Registration dates:

June 5: Scholarship Donation Day (Learn more.)

June 6: Member registration opens

For these classes, tuition increments starting at $5 and going up to 125% of the standard pricing will be listed on the page.
