Workshop for Weirdos

Are your stories a little out of place in a typical workshop? This class is focused entirely on weird stories—bizarre and uncanny stories that don’t quite fit anywhere else. Each week we’ll discuss aspects of creating a weird story such as world-building, genre expectations, and publication. We’ll look at weird stories from authors like Kim Fu, Aimee Bender, and others. We’ll workshop each other’s writing, safe in the knowledge that we are surrounded by fellow weirdos. Returning weirdos welcome!
