Join CB Mako for this half day workshop on writing fandom.
When we love something or someone, we often want to write about them. But how do we do this in a way that works for the reader? In this workshop, we’ll explore the ways in which fandom can be generative, opening up new approaches to writing, and examine strategies for writing when the depth of our obsession risks overpowering our prose.
- When: Saturday 28 October, 10am-1pm
- Where: Online
- With: CB Mako
