What's your zombie contingency plan? (We know you have one.)|
Maybe you're terrified of the apocalypse or maybe you find it strangely comforting. But if you love TV and movies set in the end times, this course is for you. Drawing from sources such as Black Mirror, Mad Max: Fury Road, and The Walking Dead, we'll examine the appeal and the terror of this popular trope. We'll also develop tools for world-building, managing backstory, and setting the stakes in your own stories.
Over two 3-hour sessions (April 22 and April 29), your two instructors will show clips, facilitate sophisticated discussion, and provide you with innovative writing prompts to deepen your understanding of apocalyptic storytelling. You'll also have the opportunity to share work generated by the prompts in a supportive environment. Unless the world ends first.
This class is for any writer who wants to enhance their storytelling ability. It's also an appropriate course for folks who love apocalyptic television and want to explore it in a more intense and inspirational way.
