In this creative writing adventure, you’ll invent your own time-travel story that goes back into the past. We’ll talk about different types of time-travel stories and the paradox of changing the past to affect the future. Together we’ll brainstorm unique time-travel portals, vehicles, and time-jumper methods. You’ll figure out how to choose a time period and create the rules for your time-bending story.
Tuesday, August 15, 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Into the Far Out Future
Are you ready to take a leap into the future? In this creative writing class we’ll write futuristic stories that imagine alternative worlds. We’ll talk about why your story’s rules need to be consistent, even while you create places that depart from reality. You’ll learn how to blend in worldbuilding details, without adding too much. This is your chance to stretch your imagination while writing unforgettable characters who live in an invented future!
