Workshop for Weirdos [Carolyn Abram]
UPDATE: This class has moved online and will now take place on Zoom. This has been updated from the print catalog.
Intermediate | Are your stories a little out of place in a typical workshop? This class focuses on those weird stories—the ones that are bizarre and uncanny and just don’t quite fit anywhere else. Each week we’ll discuss aspects of creating a weird story such as world building, genre, and publication. We’ll look at weird stories from Karen Russell, Ted Chiang, and more. We will also workshop each other’s writing, safe in the knowledge that we are surrounded by our fellow weirdos.
