Embracing the weird in your writing means taking risks and breaking rules. It means being completely honest and not being afraid of judgment. It means having fun, trying experimental techniques and looking at things from strange angles. In this online course, we'll explore how approaching writing in unusual ways can unlock your creativity. We'll do some reading, lots of writing and break some writing rules while we're at it.

This workshop is suitable for 13 to 16 year olds who would like to understand speculative fiction and try their hand at writing a piece that defies all rules.
