Do you like creating weird stories? Are you interested in odd plots, characters, and places that you don’t see in other books? Do you like inserting absurdity into real-life situations? Have you ever wanted to write a modern-day fairy tale? Then you like fabulist writing, where the weird enters our human world. In this workshop, we will experiment with different earthly settings and creatures as springboards for building unique and strange stories. We’ll even explore Mt. Hope Cemetery to bend our imagination toward new realms of ideas.
