The Magic of Immersive Fiction, a 1-day workshop

On Sunday 4/13 I'm teaching "The Magic of Immersive Fiction," a one-day workshop on how to submerge a reader into the world of your fiction--essentially, how to run your software on their hardware, no matter what genre you're interested in. It runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., in Seattle's University District, and costs $130.

It'll be a mix of writing exercise, discussion, fun, and brain-wrinkling work. With some handouts. (No idea what those might be, yet, but they'll be fabulous...)

The Magic of Immersive Fiction

Immersive fiction sweeps you off your feet and puts you right there, right then, living and breathing with the characters. With writing exercises, discussion, and handouts we’ll learn how to create the excitement, sensory detail, and clarity that brings a whole world and its people alive.
The class is designed for a maximum of fourteen students and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. So sign up here soonish. And know that much of your money will go towards keeping Clarion West robust and able to offer the flagship six-week workshop every summer. (If you're an alum of said workshop, you're eligible for a bit of a discount on the  one-day fee.)

There are other one-day workshops this season, too, from Ellen Klages, Rachel Swirsky, and Lisa Gold + Louise Marley. Take a look.

I've taught for both six-week workshop and the one-day workshops, so don't worry if you don't know what to do; I do. I can guarantee you a great day.
