Stranger Things: Intro to Sci Fi and Fantasy Flash Fiction
January 18 @ 10:00 am$75
Instructor: Celeste Schantz-Kovachi
Do you have a story to tell? Fantastic worlds to share? Characters in your head? Join fellow creative writers to encounter wild fiction that will have you falling through wormholes and sipping tea by the pool with replicants. Discover how to share your own stranger things, dreams, and nightmare visions in beautiful, brief detail. In this workshop, you’ll read some fantastic examples of uncanny speculative flash fiction. Several unconventional writing techniques will be shared; then we’ll spend some time crafting our own wild, weird drafts.
