Weirdly Ordinary

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!
