ONLINE It's in the cards: the art of Ludic story-writingSaturday August 8, 2020
2:00 PM until 3:00 PM
We welcome speculative fiction writers C. S. E. Cooney and Carlos Hernandez for an afternoon of fiction and poetry—and writing prompts! They will read from new works written off prompts using a bespoke card deck from their new tabletop roleplaying game-in-progress, Negocios Infernales. After, there will be a short presentation on how the game itself works. Then, using a virtual deck of the cards, they will give volunteers from the audience writing prompts of their own. In conclusion, they will answer any questions on writing and publishing books, game-design, teaching, and poetry. Bonus ukulele music for fun!
