Sci-Fi Scribes

Scribes will explore the craft of Science Fiction, using Hugo House as a home base as their minds journey to new worlds. Together with Nisi, Scribes will engage dynamically with creative writing and participate in quality programming that includes arts-driven field trips, writing activities, craft exercises, and exposure to a diverse range of genres, forms, and writers. The session will culminate in a community reading where Scribes will have the opportunity to share their work! All skill levels welcome.
