Writefest kicks off with a series of four-day, genre-specific writing workshops. Held in beautiful artists' studios in Silver Street Studios, the Writefest Weekday Workshops will run Monday, May 27th - Thursday, May 30th, from 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM. Today we're highlighting this year's Science Fiction & Fantasy workshop, taught by Tex Thompson!
Science fiction and fantasy is a wide-encompassing genre where anything can happen! It all boils down to the question of what if? What if humanity traveled to the stars? What if a young farmboy pulled a sword from a stone? Or, if you're this year's instructor, what if the world of a standard western is populated by all manner of fantastical creatures? Check out an excerpt from Tex's novel One Night in Sixes to get a glimpse of her imagination!
