If you fell off the writing wagon or constantly feel blocked due to stress, uncertainty, or just not wanting to due to *gestures* All This and ready to try and get back to it, this unworkshop is for you. Play a no-pressure writing game with me and author Alethea Kontis to spark your imagination and get words on paper again.
We’ll be playing Sugar, Porridge, Spoons, a game for writers designed to push past your internal editor and get you creating weird and wonderful stuff without the pressure of trying to produce something specific.
We’ll meet on Zoom for live virtual game sessions on:
- Saturday May 1 | 5PM – 7PM eastern
- Sunday May 2 | 4PM – 6PM eastern
- Wednesday May 5 | 4PM – 6PM eastern
- Saturday May 8 | 5PM – 7PM eastern
- Sunday May 9 | 4PM – 6PM eastern
All sessions are optional. If you can make some but not others, that’s fine. Participants will have access to videos of each session afterward.
You’ll also be invited to a private Discord server where you can discuss the outcome of each game session.
This unworkshop costs $40 and is open to writers ages 14 to 114 years old. There are scholarships available.
There are 4 scholarships available to writers who cannot afford the registration fee for class. Half are specifically for Black, Indigenous, and other Writers of Color, half are available to any writer from any identity background.
To apply, fill out this form. You’ll be asked to provide a personal statement (up to 500 words) and a statement of financial need (300 words). Please Note: I define financial need broadly, from those who absolutely can’t pay to those who may have the money but can’t set it aside for a writing course. Don’t self reject!
