Writing Workshop with Patrick Scalisi
Tuesday, January 20 @ 7pm
Join us at this writing workshop as we explore writing Fantasy and Science Fiction. Once considered fringe genres, fantasy and science fiction have produced some of the most important literary and entertainment works of the 20th and early-21st centuries. Have you ever considered taking readers into the farthest reaches of the galaxy, the deepest depths of the enchanted forest, or the darkest corners of cyberspace? If so, then we invite you to join Naugatuck-based genre author Patrick Scalisi as we discuss the specific hallmarks of fantasy and sci-fi before picking up our pens to write from a few speculative prompts. Please register online or call 203-389-3433 to register by phone.
