Write Night with Maryan Nagy Captan

Write Nite: The Afterlife is an experimental workshop focused on world building. We'll be using the book Sum: Forty Tales from the Afterlives by David Eagleman to explore alternative realities, build 3 dimensional settings, and discuss how characters are effected by the conditions set forth by their environments. And we'll write, a lot. :)

$8-10 sliding scale. This workshop will be led by Maryan Nagy Captan and hosted by The Head & The Hand.
