Event description

Description

When Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from troubled dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a monstrous insect. Will you wait around until you die of some awful apple-related injury? Or will you take matters into your own… pincers?

In this workshop, you will learn how to make ‘Choose Your Own Ending’ stories, where the narrative develops according to choices you present to the reader. This workshop will focus on writing technique, and some of the ways you can incorporate choice into your fiction.

We will be using Kafka’s Metamorphosis as a starting point, so you might want to read this short story beforehand.
