Hugo-winning science fiction writer David D. Levine will host a week-long examination of the challenges and opportunities of the worlds of science fiction and fantasy. The workshop, Elsewhere, Elsewhen, and Elsewise, will be a laid-back week whose content is largely determined by the attendees, but potential topics for discussion include:
- Integrating character, plot, and world building
- Using sets and props to define character, clarify the world, and build emotion
- Using all the senses (there are more than just five)
- Developing an idea into a story.
There will be plenty of time for writing, questions, and group discussion.
The workshop will be held Monday through Friday, July 15-20, 2018, at Colonyhouse. There are two options for attendance:
$400 total for classes Monday through Friday, including double-occupancy lodging from Sunday after 4 p.m. through Friday noon.
$200 for Monday-through-Friday class only.
