Have you ever dreamed of creating fantasy realms or writing science fiction worlds of past or future? Maybe you want to write, but feel intimidated by coming up with otherworldly ideas?
Whether you already have a story in you or very new to writing, this class will offer you the basic skills of storytelling to help you transport your writing. We will review the distinct characteristics of Fantasy & Sci-Fi, and you’ll learn story structure and identifying your writing rhythm. We’ll also explore how to use digital and print Vision Boards to create phenomenal characters and imaginative worldbuilding. Need ideas? We’ll learn how to imagine stories by using the influence of cultural mythologies and punk genres.
You'll leave this class with a full arsenal of material that you can use to inspire your fantasy and sci fi writing!
This session will be held immediately before a FREE Weekend Writing Escape! Sign up for these back-to-back sessions or just one, depending on your interest.
