Join science fiction author and screenwriter Temi Oh for a writing workshop inspired by world-building.

Science fiction has given us names for the kinds of worlds we want (Utopian) and don’t want (Orwellian, Lovecraftian). Together participants will invent some utopias and dystopias of their own and create some of the people living inside them.

Workshop Accessibility

This 2-hour writing workshop has space for 25 participants and will include practical exercises and discussion. No prior writing experience required.

Please contact [email protected] with questions about access.
