Award-winning writer Eric Witchey leads this fun, interactive, often hilarious, and always imaginative group story-creation activity filled with tips, tricks, and tools to help you bring the sense of discovery back into your own writing.

This fun and fast event is one-third magic trick, one-third creativity hack, one-third seminar, and all fun for everyone who attends. Eric will use classic short story structures and the collective minds of the participants to create a fast, dynamic environment that builds a full story in real-time. The story will begin with nothing except a room full of playful minds, and a step-by-step story will emerge over the two hours of the process.

Participants will go home with an understanding of exactly how it was done so they can do it again on their own or with friends. Eric cautions that repeating the process does take longer than it will in the seminar. However, he says, after you’ve done it a couple of hundred times, it gets a lot faster. Feel free to bring BYOC (Bring Your Own Chocolate) and join the fun!

Eric will answer questions about the Fiction Fluency Seminar Series after the workshop from 8-8:30 pm.
